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.
