As negotiations continue on the 2018 Farm Bill, the National Farmers Union joined 20 other farm, food and conservation groups have voiced their opinions.
In a letter written to Congress, the group said they are looking for a farm bill that ensures farmers and ranchers can both increase the productivity and sustainability of their operations.
NFU President Roger Johnson says, “Family farmers and ranchers are the original stewards of our land, and they need the flexibility and support offered in these suggestions to ensure the land, water and air is protected and productive.”
You can find a copy of the letter on the NFU’s website.
