WATCH: Miller Discusses Family Farms at Virtual 'Coffee with the Commissoner'

Date: July 21, 2022

Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller spoke with members about some of the issues affecting Texas's family farms

NFIB grabbed a virtual cup of coffee this morning with Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller. 

Speaking from the driver’s seat of his “GMC studio in the parking lot of a Walmart” in Lubbock, Commissioner Miller said, “Agriculture is small business. There’s 250,000 farms and ranches in the state of Texas. Ninety-five percent of those are family farms, small businesses.” Agriculture is the second-largest industry in the state, behind only oil and gas, “so it is big business, and it’s mostly small businesses.”

Topics during the online meeting ranged from the accuracy of the state’s barcode scanners to rural healthcare. Watch the replay below.
