AGree posts farm policy videos from its co-chairs

AGree, the multi-foundation effort on long-term farm policy, has released a series of microdocumentaries in which its four chairmen discuss the challenges for modern farm policy.

New videos feature Gary Hirshberg, chairman, president and “CE-Yo” of Stonyfield Farm; Jim Moseley, former Agriculture deputy secretary in the George W. Bush administration and an Indiana farmer; and Emmy Simmons, former assistant administrator for economic growth, agriculture and trade at the U.S. Agency for International Development.

A fourth video, released in May 2011, features Dan Glickman, the Agriculture secretary in the Clinton administration.
