Utah Farm Bureau visits with KSL Radio About Inflation Impacts on Food & Agriculture
Utah Farm Bureau President Ron Gibson was a guest on KSL radio's Inside Sources program with Boyd Matheson to talk about how inflation is impacting agriculture, and food prices.
According to KSL, "While we've seen inflation appear on our grocery bill and at the pump, it's exacerbating the problems small businesses have been experiencing for years. Ron Gibson with the Utah Farm Bureau talks with Boyd about how difficult inflation has been on farmers, who are facing additional challenges with labor and the drought."
With fuel and fertilizer prices tripling in some instances for farmers & ranchers, added to continued labor challenges and drought, it has made a tough agricultural economy even worse. But Utah farmers & ranchers are continuing to do all they can to ensure local food at affordable prices.
