Speaking to KSMU by phone, she says the focus of her tour is on ensuring that large, concentrated agriculture operations don't have a negative impact on family farms.

One specific issue that McCaskill is pushing is the implementation of Country of Origin labeling.

As for Talent's position on Country of Origin labeling, Lloyd Smith says Talent supports a voluntary program.
