On October 11, ResponsibleAg, ARA, and TFI hosted personnel from the Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Homeland Security, and Department of Transportation at the Ford B. West Center for ResponsibleAg in Owensboro, Ky. This was the fourth annual agency tour at the facility.
The visit provided an opportunity for federal regulators to not only see the ResponsibleAg training facility, but to also interact with ResponsibleAg board members. This resulted in very dynamic and productive conversations. All federal regulators continue to be impressed with the robust and comprehensive nature of the ResponsibleAg program, a voluntary compliance initiative.
