Updates from Farm Bureau convention in New Orleans

Bob Krauter of the Capital Press is in New Orleans for the American Farm Bureau Federation convention. He's already posted a couple of stories from the gathering. As you might expect, the still incomplete farm bill has been a big topic of discussion there. Both acting-Agriculture Secretary Chuck Conner and Farm Bureau President Bob Stallman have addressed it so far.

Look for more updates from Krauter on the Capital Press website and in Jan. 18 edition of Capital Press.

Update: 2 p.m., Jan. 14: We've added links to Farm Bureau video in the story on Stallman's speech (see links at the bottome of that story) and added a story from freelance writer Jerry Hagstrom to the convention coverage package, which we have grouped in a section on Farm Bureau coverage on our website.
