Farm bill needed to provide farmers with certainty – Voice Of Muscatine


Farm bill needed to provide farmers with certainty

The executive president of newly-formed Keystone Cooperative, formerly Ceres Solutions an agricultural cooperative, says farmers need the certainty of a long-term farm bill. 

Jeff Troike says having a bill in place helps farmers make solid business decisions. “Ag is a high risk, high-capital business,” he says.  “They need that solid safety net to protect their business. They also go back to produce the food, fiber, and fuel that takes care of us and part of the world and have that good, safe supply that we need.” 

He tells Brownfield commodity prices farmers receive have declined substantially in recent months.
