WASHINGTON - Minnesota Farmers Union (MFU) and National Farmers Union (NFU) have presented U.S. Rep. Tim Walz with the Golden Triangle Award, the dual organization’s highest legislative honor.
The award is presented to members of Congress who have demonstrated leadership in agricultural policies and support the policies that benefit America’s family farmers, ranchers, fishermen and rural communities.
This year’s Golden Triangle recipients were selected for their leadership on a variety of issues, including votes on labeling and trade issues. The awards were presented this month at a reception during NFU’s 2015 Legislative Fly-In in Washington.
“We believe that Rep. Tim Walz has been a strong, supporting advocate for family farmers and ranchers in Minnesota,” said MFU President Doug Peterson. “Tim has a 100 percent voting record with the policies that we support here in Minnesota Farmers Union and National Farmers Union, and we appreciate his work and his voice on the behalf of Minnesota farmers on the Hill.”
