I’m going to speak on a slightly different perspective here. I guess the first question I have is how many farmers do we have in the audience? Val, I marked you down as an organic farmer here today, as I learned that today. I don’t think we have many, and I’m going to take a fantastic leap of judgment saying that the students that are here at the University of Richmond School of Law are not preparing for careers in agriculture. So, I’m going to come from a farmer’s point of view. I will jump back and forth between my perspective as working with Virginia Department of Agriculture and my former position working with the U.S. Grains Council where I worked on national level producer is- sues.
