McConnell speaks at Kentucky Farm Bureau meeting in Louisville

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - More than 1,500 members from the Kentucky Farm Bureau were in Louisville on Saturday, part of the groups 95th annual meeting.

The event focused on the success and challenges of Kentucky's agriculture industry during the past year.

Topics discussed ranged from wildlife management and beef cattle to tobacco and farm labor.

Senator Mitch McConnell was there, speaking about the guest worker program and how it relates to immigration and agriculture in Kentucky.

McConnell says the border is still a big problem and needs to be fixed. 

 "I don't think the president did the issue any good by, as I put it the day after the election, kind of waving a red flag in front of the Congress," he said. "This is a tough issue under the best of circumstances. He's made it more difficult."

The four-day event ended Saturday.

It also included several committee meetings, business sessions and award presentations.
