The Congressman in line to become the next House Ag Committee chair wants to allow more vibrant discussions about milk pricing. Republican Glenn GT Thompson tells Brownfield he supports a suggestion to add language to the farm bill that allows more discussion about issues in a Federal Milk Marketing Order hearing. He says, “I’m open to that. Yeah, I think we need to have that candid conversation.”
Thompson says the U.S. has lost many dairy farms and the trend needs to be reversed.
