Farmer Congressional testimony

I never thought I’d be testifying in front of Congress. But last week, there I was.

My name is Justin Doerr, and I am a beginning farmer from Nebraska and an Iraq War Veteran. When I got back from the service, I had the desire to farm but did not have the capital and resources to begin farming.

Last Thursday, I told Congress what I wanted for the Farm Bill: better beginning farmer programs so people like me can get started in agriculture. You can see my testimony here:
