Attending the annual convention of the National Association of Farm Broadcasters (NAFB) this week in Kansas City, AgNet West farm broadcast team members are visiting with agricultural newsmakers on many of the national agriculture issues of our times. Among all the elections chatter, one interesting forum involved three former U. S. Secretaries of Agriculture. Each of them shared candid and sometimes humorous stories about their time in that position and the Presidents they served under. In the photo are NAFB President-elect Mark Oppold at podium, and seated (l to r) are Bob Bergland, (Carter administration); John Block, (Reagan administration); and Clayton Yeutter, (Bush administration). The NAFB annual meeting is a must attend for the approximately 150 or so farm broadcasters who remain in the profession nationwide. The meeting ends Friday evening.
