The N.D. Farmers Union meets Nov. 20-21, too, but at Fargo, N.D., Holiday Inn. The program includes a session for farmers and ranchers to share ideas and suggestions on how future farm policies should address the volatility of commodity prices, input costs and unpredictability of the market climate. Senators Kent Conrad and Bryon Dorgan and Representative Earl Pomeroy have each been invited to attend the event to hear producers' concerns.
