MONTGOMERY, AL – U.S. Representative Martha Roby (R-AL) and House Agriculture Committee Chairman Mike Conaway (R-TX) today completed an agriculture tour in Alabama’s Second Congressional District.

Throughout the day, Representative Roby and Chairman Conaway made stops in Pike, Coffee, and Geneva Counties to have conversations with farmers and local leaders in southeast Alabama. This visit comes during a key time for our nation’s agriculture policy as the House and Senate recently passed their versions of the farm bill and will soon be working out differences before sending the final bill to President Trump’s desk.

Representative Roby and Chairman Conaway held a large farmers’ roundtable discussion in conjunction with the Alabama Farmer’s Federation at the Pike County Cattlemen Association. They then went to private farms in Coffee and Geneva Counties for tours and briefings on their respective crops and operations.

Representative Roby expressed gratitude to the Chairman for the time he dedicated to her constituents today:

“It was a great day visiting farms and discussing agriculture policy in the Wiregrass. I deeply appreciate House Agriculture Committee Chairman Mike Conaway and his wife Suzanne for making themselves available to the farmers in Alabama’s Second District. I believe it was a truly valuable experience for the people I represent to have the opportunity to discuss with me and the Ag Chairman the agriculture policies before Congress, especially the farm bill. I look forward to working alongside my colleagues to deliver a smart, strong farm bill to the President for his signature soon.”
