03 - 03 - 2014 Golden Plow Award bestowed to Cong. Glenn Thompson
U.S. Rep. Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson has been recognized for his work on behalf of American farm families with the Golden Plow Award, which is the highest honor the American Farm Bureau Federation presents to members of Congress. Thompson received the award during a presentation before 150 farmers from PA, who are in Washington D.C. to participate in PA Farm Bureau’s National Legislative Conference. AFBF selected Thompson as the lone recipient of the Golden Plow Award this year. The PA Farm Bureau nominated Thompson for the award because of his support for the recently passed farm bill, his commitment to reducing regulatory red tape and burdens on farmers, and his leadership in addressing EPA-related challenges that threaten the very foundation of agriculture.
