A Farm Bill impacts all consumers

The current Farm Bill expires in two years, and stakeholders are already discussing what they would like to see added or improved.

The legislation covers more than farm programs. The Nutrition Title takes up the largest portion, but expansion for rural broadband and ag-related research is just as important.

The National Corn Growers Association says that one of the most important aspects of the 2023 Farm Bill should be educating consumers on what is in it for them.

According to the Association’s Jon Doggett, “We’re going to have to be able to articulate how farm programs benefit the American taxpayer, not just farmers. We have to show the efficacy and the need for resilient farm programs that keep agriculture in this country alive.”
