The Montana Farm Bureau is extremely pleased that the 2018 Farm Bill has been signed into law by President Donald Trump.
Hans McPherson said, “With the signing of the 2018 Farm Bill, we are pleased that farmers and ranchers have the security they need and the ability to continue to produce the safest, most abundant, most affordable food in the history of the world. We are pleased that those without means will be able to have the food and nourishment they need to sustain themselves. Farmers truly want everyone who is hungry to be fed and this is why the 2018 Farm Bill is a win-win not only for farmers, but consumers.”
MFBF National Affairs Director Nicole Rolf added, “We are so pleased to see the 2018 Farm Bill signed in to law in 2018. It really came down to the wire, but thanks to the good work of House and Senate Ag Committee leadership, as well as our own Montana Senators and Congressman, a very good product has become law and many of Farm Bureau’s priorities are included. Crop insurance is maintained, the sugar program was protected, Title 1 commodity programs are maintained and even enhanced, and certain programs in the conservation title still provide farmers and ranchers useful tools that benefit their farms and ranches, as well as the environment, and much more. This is all good news for Montana agriculture.”
The Montana Farm Bureau looks forward to working with its farmer and rancher members as the new bill is implemented.
