NFU’s Larew explains farm bill priorities

Farmers Union delegates would like Congress to consider two key additions to the next farm bill.

Rob Larew tells Brownfield Farmers Union has been pushing for a competition title to provide a more level playing field for farmers with a working free-market system. “But unfortunately when you have ag companies or businesses get so large that they become monopolies or near-monopolies, that puts a real strain on the marketplace, ultimately hurts farmers, and certainly hurts consumers as well.”

And Larew says Farmers Union will ask Congress for a disaster program built into the farm bill to speed up relief when needed.
