Rural Champion uses USDA Funding to Bring Change to North Dakota

Everett Dobrinski, CoBank, North Dakota

Cross posted from the White House Rural Champions of Change website:

Everett farmed all his life in North Dakota and taught high school while farming for a few years. Nowadays, Everett is a full-time farmer and a leader in co-operatives with farming. He is a board chairman of CoBank, which is a farm credit bank which lends to rural electric, water, telephone, as well as farm credit associations. Most co-ops only lend to farm credit associations, but CoBank also does direct loans. Through USDA, CoBank lends especially to start-up coops, like ethanol. Everett also serves on rural electric co-operative board.

    Mr. Dobrinski seems like an accomplished and effective leader and Rural Champion for Change. As such, I hope that he will support Hemp Farming in North Dakota.
    North Dakota was the first state to pass a comprehensive hemp farming bill. Today, The National Farmers Union, the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture, and 17 States, have all endorsed a change in federal policies to encourage job growth.
