“We applaud the passage of the Senate’s Farm Bill version, as it draws much needed attention to the needs of our dairy farmers, especially here in the Midwest. Senate leadership have listened to the concerns we shared one-on-one, creating a new Farm Bill that will hopefully provide the right support when farmers need it. Now, we’ll work with members from the House and Senate to work out their differences to get a Farm Bill that benefits all of production agriculture.”
