Farmers and ranchers continue to pay close attention to farm bill discussions.
Eastern Iowa farmer Dave Walton serves on the American Soybean Association’s Board of Directors. He says producers need a stronger farm safety net. “Making sure ARC and PLC are working the way they are supposed to, and providing sort of a counter cyclical base under the market,” Walton said.
Northwest Iowa farmer Kelly Nieuwenhuis says trade programs need a boost in funding.
