Senator Larry Craig is serving his third term in the United States Senate. Senator Craig represents all of the people from Idaho unlike our Congressmen that represent a specific district. Senator Craig was also elected to four terms as United States Congressman for the 1st District.
Senator Craig was an Idaho Future Farmers of America President and was National Vice-President of the Future Farmers of America. The Senator grew up on a ranch near Midvale that was homesteaded by his grandfather in 1899. Senator Craig has been involved with agriculture all of his life and has been a strong advocate for Idaho and Agriculture.
Senator Craig serves on several committees and they are: Appropriations, Energy & Natural Resources, Environment & Public Works, Veterans’ Affairs, and a special committee on aging. Senator Craig has been very important to Idaho and Agriculture because of his love of both. He has worked hard to keep farmers where they belong, on the farm.
Senator Craig holds many meetings around Idaho and held a meeting at my farm in 2006 to talk about the Farm Bill and the Conservation Security Program (CSP.) I showed Senator Craig the new technology on my combine and how it can help me become more efficient. Our family was also honored to have a picture with the Senator representing four generations of our family.
In appreciation for his dedication to agriculture, I presented him with a plaque from the Nez Perce County Grain Producers and Farm Bureau recognizing his work. Dillon and I were able to meet with Senator Craig on a different trip to Washington, D.C. to discuss Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS.)
