As you may have recently heard, the Farm Bill is being debated, revised and hopefully approved/accepted this year. And as always, there as those who know little of agriculture but deem it necessary to try to over-regulate our industry. This latest initiative is Farm Bill amendment 2252 which would regulate on-farm production practices. If approved, this amendment sets a dangerous precedent that would potentially enable the federal government to mandate production practices in all agriculture settings. You can read more about the amendment here (I encourage you to do so).
Don’t like it? Neither do I – but you can do something. Contact your state Senators to let them know of your disapproval. You can easily do that by clicking here. For more information regarding the hazardous legislation click here.
Your action is needed to stand up for our industry!
Until next time,
