“I’m honored to receive this award by National Farmers Union for my work on behalf of farmers,” said Casey. “The dairy industry is important to the security of Pennsylvania’s economy and rural towns. As a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee I am committed to helping our family farmers throughout the Commonwealth and I look working with the members of the committee on the Farm bill.”
The Golden Triangle Award is based on NFU's symbol—a triangle with "legislation" and "cooperation" forming the sides and "education" the base. The Golden Triangle Award is awarded annually and was first established in 1988.
Senator Casey is a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee. One of his top priorities on the Committee is to help craft a Farm Bill that improve the federal dairy program for Pennsylvania dairy farmers.
