“Representative Gentile laid out the issue so clearly for the committee and to the public through that editorial,” says Connecticut Farm Bureau Executive Director Henry Talmage. “She advocated for a livestock advisory council working in cooperation with the Connecticut Department of Agriculture and the Connecticut Farm Bureau and expressed her confidence that this collaboration could and would establish comprehensive, consistent and reasonable standards for all livestock.”

“It’s an honor to receive this recognition from such a distinguished organization,” said Rep. Gentile. “Agriculture is such an important part of our history and very much a part of the fabric of our local communities. It is a huge economic force in Connecticut. As such, we need to do whatever is possible to protect, preserve and expand farm operations and commercial agriculture in this state.”
