As I mentioned in my last post, there is a petition drive going on right now to get a measure on the November 2012 ballot for a constitutional amendment to safeguard farming and ranching in North Dakota. The language of this amendment reads:
The right of farmers and ranchers to engage in modern farming and ranching practices shall be forever guaranteed in this state. No law shall be enacted which abridges the right of farmers and ranchers to employ agricultural technology, modern livestock production and ranching practices.
Here, former NDFB President Eric Aasmundstad explains the reasoning behind this amendment:
Chad has been carrying petitions with him and has been out and about informing people about the initiative. If you are interested in learning more about the amendment, visit http://ndfeedingfamilies.com/about/, and if you would like to sign the petition, contact Chad and he will make sure you have the opportunity to do so.
