LATEST SENATOR TESTER
(U.S. Senate) - U.S. Senator Jon Tester has secured $523,355 from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Institute of Food and Agriculture to teach young Montana farmers how to start and grow their operations.
The Community Food and Agriculture Coalition in Missoula will use the money to provide education and mentoring programs to help young farmers and ranchers build and manage successful farms.
"Montana farmers and ranchers are the backbone of our economy, and some of the best in the world," said Tester. "As a farmer myself, I know how much hard work and training it takes to yield a crop. I look forward to seeing what all the young farmers will do after learning valuable skills."
