Darrel Hodne, Delwin Bratland, and LaVern Aisenbrey participate in a Young Farmer Panel discussion at the South Dakota Farmers Union convention. They discuss the influence of the farming industry, the importance of farmer representatives in Washington D.C., and how the open market has changed due to large corporations and inflation. They also discuss the difficulty of starting a small family farm by young farmers and how the Farmers Union assists young farmers in their ability to compete against the larger corporations. Concern is expressed about urban development encroaching on important farm land and a lack of respect for nature that needs to be addressed by a land use policy.
