Senator John Boozman toured UAM’s agriculture dept., Thursday morning, as a part of his district-wide agri tour.

Boozman and his staff, along with UAM agri-business faculty visited various sites that are a part of UAM programs.

After the tour Senator Boozman led a brief meeting with those attending, where a wide range of topics were covered, including the Farm Bill, student loans, the drought’s effect on farming, future use of natural gas, and Heirloom tomatos.
