Farm Bureau Ready to Fight Climate, Animal Rights ‘Extremists’ to Protect Agriculture Industry

January 11, 2010 /EIN PRESSWIRE/ Bob Stallman, the president of the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF), threw down the gauntlet at the opening of the AFBF convention in Seattle, saying that American farmers must “aggressively respond to extremists” and “misguided, activist-driven regulation.”

The sharp rhetoric from the president of the largest U.S. farm group was aimed straight at pending climate legislation as well as animal rights activists, who Stallman said want to “destroy our ability to produce the meat that Americans want to eat.”

Is this lip service to appease the membership or will the AFBF do what they need to do to back up the talk?
