Michigan Farm Bureau members take concerns to Lansing

Michigan Farm Bureau members say they are concerned about the regulatory environment for farms in the state.

Branch County’s Doug Bloom tells Brownfield members don’t feel like many lawmakers are listening to farmers.

“I just think right now the atmosphere in the state is not very friendly to ag and especially animal agriculture,” he shares. “To me, my feeling is that’s driven down to the (agriculture) department from the top down.”

Michigan Farm Bureau Legislative Counsel Ben Tirrell says they are disappointed to see legislators work to eliminate oversight committees for the Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy.
