Residents of New Mexico advocate on the Farm Bill

Carlos Navarro, Bread for the World's New Mexico State Coordinator, put together an excellent post about lobby day and an Offering of Letters.  He has some great reflections from Gene Watson - a southern New Mexico farmer.

We were tired of growing lettuce, onions, cabbage and selling them for the harvesting cost, trucking cost and broker fees.  In other words we received nothing for growing the crops, or very little in return. We had to hope for bad weather in other farming areas to make a profit, which isn't a very good Christian attitude." Gene Watson
