A Visit to the American Embassy

From the website of the U.S. Embassy in Berlin . . .

Sept. 27: U.S. farmers visit the Embassy

Four U.S. farmers visited the Embassy to meet with USDA Staff to discuss U.S.-German agricultural issues such as trade, biotechnology and animal welfare. The four are part of the McCloy Fellows in Agriculture program and will be touring German agriculture for the next several weeks on a program organized by the German Farmer's Union. The 2011 McCloy fellows are Tracy Grondine of Virginia, Katherine Harrison of Ohio, Chad Vorthman of Colorado, and Shane Otley of Oregon. This marks the 35th year this program has been running.
