East comes West for harvest

Over the weekend, Josh Tonsager, National Association of Wheat Growers’ (NAWG) vice president of policy and communications, spent time down in Benton County with NAWG Secretary/Treasurer Nicole Berg helping out with wheat harvest.

Josh also got a tour of the grain elevator and learned all about wheat grading, segregation, Pacific Northwest and U.S. transportation and how trade policy affects the local economy/elevator.

On Josh’s last day the bankout (grain cart) was still broke down so Josh volunteered to drive the combine! Thank you Nicole Berg for hosting Josh and for the great pictures!
