Some farmers and ranchers are concerned lawmakers won’t be able to pass the 2023 Farm Bill by September 1st.
Eastern Iowa farmer Dave Walton serves on the American Soybean Association’s Board of Directors.
“If we could get it by the end of the year, that would be helpful,” he said. “Anytime past that, farmers are starting to make cropping decisions for the following year and it puts a lot of those decisions in limbo.”
He tells Brownfield he has several policy priorities as farm bill discussions pick up steam.
