Post-Election Implications for Agriculture

The Agricultural Business Council of Kansas City’s November 12 webinar took a look at the results of the November 3 election and the implications for agribusiness.

The panel featured farm policy analyst Sara Wyant, founder of Agri-Pulse Communications; Blake Hurst, president, Missouri Farm Bureau Federation; and Ron Seeber, president and CEO for the Kansas Grain and Feed Association, Renew Kansas Biofuels Association, and Kansas Ag Retailers Association. Phil Karsting, Senior Policy Advisor, Olsson Frank Weeda Terman Matz, and former Foreign Agricultural Service Administrator under President Obama, was a surprise guest.

Wyant delved into the outcome of elections across the country and where support was strongest for each presidential candidate, as well as how the pollsters got it so wrong.
