Mike Pearson tells us about an announcement U.S.A. Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack made at the Farm Progress Show for additional funding for renewable energy projects for farmers.

It was the best weather last week for thousands of farmers gathering at the Farm Progress Show about the newest technology including climate smart projects.

Vilsack announced $266 million worth of loans and grants to help farmers install and utilize climate smart projects on their farmers. The funding will also help farmers to create additional streams of revenue with renewable energy.

"It's never been a better time to be in ag..." said Vilsack at the show. He added the Biden administration is all about supporting production agriculture and help farmers make climate smart/renewable energy projects profitable for them.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Mike Pearson, a farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
