Students that attended had the opportunity to meet local and state legislators and hear presentations on local agriculture issues and laws. Some of the topics covered included: PA production statistics, the need for skilled agricultural workers in our area, beef commodities, small business planning, and permit regulations for oversized farm machinery. Legislators were able to hear the issues and respond to them. Following the presentations and catered lunch, guests toured Baytree Farm where they learned about the sheep and lamb operation.
