The Green National Councilor Meret Schneider (30, ZH) keeps causing red heads among the farmers. For example, when she calls for stricter animal husbandry measures, accuses farmers of overusing antibiotics and wants to cut subsidies for the egg industry. Or as a co-initiator of the now failed factory farming initiative.

But Schneider can do things differently. In the winter session, she submitted two motions that are also able to warm the hearts of farmers. Not only the top farmer and middle national councilor Markus Ritter (55, SG) signed both approaches, but also the SVP farmers Andreas Aebi (64, BE) and Alois Huber (60, AG).
