Bronius Markauskas, the candidate for Lithuania's agriculture minister, has been a farmer in his home village of Truseliai, the Klaipėda district, for the past 16 years and is familiar with agricultural problems. More than a decade ago, he blocked roads with his peers in an effort to demand higher support to milk producers.
