Money for Farmers: Sec. Vilsack pitches his budget to Congress and says farmers are in financial binds

Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack has begun the process of pitching his budget to Congress.

He told a Senate Subcommittee thousands of farm families are in financial dire straits.

He also told Senators he received more than 450 applications for a new climate-smart commodities program, valued at three times the billion dollars set aside for the initiative.

Tomorrow he heads to Germany to meet with G7 agriculture leaders, then Poland to visit Ukraine’s Ag Minister.
