Farm Bureau says they will continue to fight policies that are bad for ag

One key ag group says that it is refusing to take sides in the newly-elected Congress, but the American Farm Bureau says that it will continue to fight policies that are bad for agriculture.

Executive Director, Dale Moore says that it is too early to get dragged into fights over energy, taxes, and trade, but Congress is likely to be more polarized in January.

If Republicans keep their control of the Senate, it will be a smaller lead, and the Democrats have narrowed their lead in the House.

According to Moore, “We know there will be challenges, but I guarantee you that the quickest way to lose out on making advances on the priorities that farmers and ranchers have set for us to work on is to throw our hands up and say, ‘you know what, this is going to be nearly impossible.’ That is not the way we operate.”


AFBF President Zippy Duvall says that ag issues are larger than political parties
