Mike, As a fellow farmer, I’m sure you have experienced the change we’re all facing in weather and climate patterns. We in agriculture have the unique ability to store carbon in soil through grazing management, cover crops, adopting lower input practices coal longer rotations, etc.

If you are elected will you pursue policy to encourage regenerative practices? Placing a value on soil carbon capture is a great place to start, but incentivizing the use of legumes and small grain in rotations can be of great value as well. We need to find a way to get diversity back into our landscapes, and I’d love to hear your thoughts on this.
