  (Mr. MARSHALL asked and was given permission to address the House for 
1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)

Mr. MARSHALL. Mr. Speaker, today I rise to recognize and celebrate National Agriculture Day.

I proudly represent the largest agriculture-producing district in the country, the big First District of Kansas. In my home State, it is Kansas Agriculture Month, a month to celebrate our State's largest economy.

Today is an opportunity to remind my colleagues of the hardworking Americans who produce the bounty of American harvest and livestock. The food that sustains them doesn't originate in a grocery store.

Let us remember as we move forward with regulations and with trade policy that there are families with generations of history on their farm or ranch who face the consequences of every decision. They feed America and our economy.

This day and every day, we are grateful that God made a farmer. ____________________
