Keep Goehring as commissioner

I support Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring’s bid for the Republican endorsement as North Dakota Ag Commissioner and his re-election.

I support Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring’s bid for the Republican endorsement as North Dakota Ag Commissioner and his re-election.

Commissioner Goehring has constantly demonstrated his commitment to agricultural research and innovative production techniques. As a livestock producer in North Dakota, my family and I are always seeking ways to improve our operation and make it more efficient.

It is critical that we utilize the latest technology to enhance our productivity and the quality of our product. The livestock industry has made great strides in technology and production techniques that allow us to produce more pounds of beef with less feed inputs and, at the same time, improve the environment. It is vital that we increase the quality of our beef to meet consumer demands.

Goehring strongly supports research and new technologies. We need to keep Goehring as our ag commissioner. He has the experience. He has the knowledge. He has the passion for agriculture. He has the ability to work with people.

Commissioner Goehring is the best qualified candidate to continue to move North Dakota’s agriculture industry forward.
