4 IMPORTANT POLICY DECISIONS THAT WILL IMPACT FARMERS, FOOD, AND THE ENVIRONMENT IN 2015
August 22, 2014
In case you missed it, Congress is back in DC and one of the most important things they need to do is pass a funding bill that will keep the government in business until the end of the fiscal year, which ends on September 30th.

Included in this blog post are the affects of the adverse “GIPSA Rider” passing and limiting the free speech rights of livestock farmers, funding for farm bill conservation programs, opportunities for beginning farmers to receive access to training and start-up capital, and food safety training for small farmers and processors.
