Kansas Farm Bureau, Kansas Livestock Association Endorse Jerry Moran for United States SenateApril 8, 2016
GREAT BEND, Kan. – Kansas Farm Bureau and Kansas Livestock Association today announced their endorsement of U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) for re-election. Sen. Moran serves as chairman of the Senate Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee and has been a trusted champion of Kansas farmers and ranchers.
“We are proud to endorse Jerry Moran for a second term in the United States Senate,” said Kansas Farm Bureau President Rich Felts. “Senator Moran has been a steadfast supporter of Kansas agriculture and our rural way of life. Jerry helped ensure that farm kids can continue to work alongside their parents. He supported crop insurance when agriculture needed it most and has supported rural Kansas at every turn. He pushed back against federal government bureaucrats who tried to regulate farm ditches and dictate how landowners protect threatened or endangered species. We look forward to working with Senator Moran as he continues to champion Kansas values in the United States Senate.”
“Sen. Moran has defended the interests of Kansas livestock producers at every turn in Congress,” said Kansas Livestock Association Chief Executive Officer Matt Teagarden. “Jerry’s genuine concern for Kansas farmers and ranchers makes him an easy choice for KLA to support in his bid for re-election.”
Kansas Farm Bureau has more than 40,000 farm and ranch family members, and exists to strengthen agriculture and the lives of Kansans through advocacy, education and service. With a county Farm Bureau in each of Kansas’ 105 counties, Kansas Farm Bureau stands up for its members through leadership development, agriculture education, legal defense, environmental advocacy, farm safety, risk management, rural development and international trade.
The Kansas Livestock Association (KLA), formed in 1894, is a trade association representing nearly 5,200 members on legislative and regulatory issues. KLA members are involved in many aspects of the livestock industry, including seed stock, cow-calf and stocker production, cattle feeding, dairy production, grazing land management and diversified farming operations.
