The Kansas Farmers Union represents its members who are engaged in various farming and ranching pursuits through cooperation, legislation, and education.
The Kansas Farmers Union takes pride in defining our policy. We believe policy should address the needs of people. The moral and ethical decisions made by individuals and governments have an impact on our daily lives, and on the lives of future generations. Recognizing that fact, our policy strives to assure those decisions maintain a just and ethical basis.
Our policy also addresses the use of our natural resources and environment with the same fervor. We must not allow greed, ignorance, or carelessness to bring about exploitation of our natural resources, or of our fellow man.
We believe family ownership of farm land is the basis for the world’s most viable system of food and fiber production, and maintaining this family farm system will preserve our country’s natural and human resources.
We believe this policy would develop farm programs that will diminish hunger, foster peace, justice, and the preservation and protection of our natural resources and local economies.
