Scuse says this trip has been eye-opening. “As a farmer when you tour crops and you see the types of conditions that the farmers here in Indiana are experiencing; it’s heartbreaking,” he says. “The losses are just devastating.”
He tells Brownfield a trip like this gives him an opportunity to visit with the Nation’s farmers and ranchers and take what he learns back to the Washington, DC.
“Hopefully we can get some ideas about things that we can do differently and make some changes in programs,” Scuse says. “That’s one of the reasons why we do these – not just to see first-hand what our producers are experiencing – but also to get ideas from them on how we can make things better for them going forward.”
Scuse spent time in Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana this week.
