The ranking member of the Senate Ag Committee says he continues to hear many of the same concerns about the 2023 Farm Bill from farmers and ag industry stakeholders around the country.
John Boozman tells Brownfield protecting the safety net is at the top of their list. “That includes crop insurance and all of our risk management tools,” he says. “The importance of trade came up, the importance of growing our markets, which we haven’t been doing a very good job of lately, research and conservation.”
He says he’s optimistic the 2023 Farm Bill can be done on time, but farm bills aren’t about partisan politics.
