If you’ve been on Twitter this week and happen to follow Gary Stanford (@senatrstanford), you’ll note that this newly minted president of the Grain Growers of Canada was in our nation’s capital meeting with the ag minister et al. to tackle a number of subjects that matter to Canadian farmers.
While railway woes are overwhelmingly the hot topic in the west, the Grain Growers of Canada represents farmers’ interests from B.C. to P.E.I and everywhere in between, says Stanford. RealAgriculture founder Shaun Haney had a chance to sit down with Stanford at FarmTech ’14 to discuss who the Grain Growers are, what’s currently on the Grain Growers’ radar and the types of people Stanford meets with on a regular basis.
