WASHINGTON — John Zimmerman, a turkey farmer from Northfield, testified at a House Agriculture Livestock and Foreign Agriculture subcommittee hearing on July 16.

Zimmerman, who serves on the executive committee of the National Turkey Federation, raises 4 million pounds of turkey every year, in addition to growing corn and soybeans.

Zimmerman spoke about the need for stable markets for exports, preparation for animal disease outbreaks, and comprehensive agriculture labor reform that provides a robust workforce for Minnesota farmers.

He spoke at the invitation of Rep. Angie Craig of Minnesota's 2nd District.
