President Trump will speak during the American Farm Bureau Federation’s 100th Annual Convention, Jan. 11-16 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Trump is set to speak during the Closing General Session.
This is the second time in as many years that Trump has appeared at Farm Bureau’s annual convention.
“The American Farm Bureau Federation is honored once again to host our nation’s president,” said AFBF President Zippy Duvall, a beef and poultry farmer from Georgia. “President Trump has made agriculture a clear priority, giving farmers and ranchers a seat at the table on the top issues affecting our farms, ranches and rural communities. What better way to celebrate 100 years of Farm Bureau than to welcome the president of the United States to our centennial celebration?”
Other national officials attending the AFBF Annual Convention include Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, USDA Under Secretary for Trade and Foreign Agricultural Affairs Ted McKinney and several members of Congress: Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman Pat Roberts (R-Kan.), Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.) and Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.).
