Kansas Governor Laura Kelly is asking Congress to support young, begging, and small farmers in the next farm bill.
She tells Brownfield the legislation needs to include incentives for the next generation. “Transportation, childcare and other kind of things that make life possible for our young folks. And, also possible, to make it financially feasible for them to stay on the farm or come back to the farm.”
She says the farm bill has to address the housing shortage and expanding rural broadband.
