Boise--Ada Country President Don Sonke is attending the PNWER conference underway this morning at the Boise Centre on the Grove.
Sonke is interested in Cross-Border issues with Canada, Animal ID and trade.

Sonke thinks the Farm Bureau association with PNWER is needed to address energy and trade issues with Canada in the 21st century.
