Dale Moore, AFBF and Sara Wyant, Agri-Pulse announce new Farm Bill series

At the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) annual meeting this week, Agri-Pulse announced a new partnership with multiple agricultural organizations for an in-depth editorial series on the next farm bill and a Farm Bill Summit to be held at the National Press Club on March 20.

Agri-Pulse Editor Sara Wyant says the series will be called “The Seven Things You Should Know Before You Write the Next Farm Bill” and it has the support of AFBF and other groups such as the Association of Equipment Manufacturers, Farm Credit, National Council of Farmer Cooperatives, and many more. “We think there are some important ‘lessons learned’ that can help inform and stimulate debate before formal work starts on writing the next bill,” said Wyant.

Even though it’s likely be the end of 2018, if not later, before Congress passes the next farm bill, AFBF Public Policy Director Dale Moore says its our job now to let members of Congress and the new Trump administration know “what we’re prepared to do to get ready for this farm bill and be ready to start this debate.”
