I. Conversation With Congressman Adrian Smith

Yesterday afternoon I spoke with U.S. Rep. Adrian Smith of Nebraska. We covered a variety of issues with respect to U.S. farm policy and the 2007 Farm Bill, including trade, the budget, renewable energy and payment limits.

The theme of my interview focused on how high market prices are impacting the agricultural debate in 2007.

Congressman Smith serves on the House Agriculture Committee, as well as the House Budget Committee and represents one of the largest agricultural districts in the country.

In the U.S., his district ranks first in the value of sales of grains and oilseeds, second in total value of agricultural product sold, and first in cattle and calve inventory. In 2005, Nebraska’s third district was the largest recipient of federal farm subsidy payments.
