NAFA D.C. Fly-In

Each February, National Alfalfa & Forage Alliance members travel to Washington, D.C. to participate in NAFA's annual D.C. Fly-In where they meet with lawmakers to discuss issues related to alfalfa and alfalfa forage systems. Typically, NAFA meets with staff of House and Senate Ag Committee members, House and Senate Ag Appropriations Committees members, USDA, and other agencies as necessary.

NAFA representatives may attend more than 100 meetings scheduled over the course of the 4-day event to promote NAFA objectives, educate Congressional members on the issues important to the alfalfa industry, and continue to build awareness and recognition of the nation's 3rd most value crop.
