MT Farmers Union says Farm Bill not perfect, but helps farmers and ranchers
The Farm Bill is now the law of the land, garnering unanimous support from Montana Senators Baucus and Tester and Representative Daines. We thought we'd take a few moments to get local reaction to the measure that was years in the making.
Chris Christiaens is lobbyist and Projects Specialist for the Great Falls-based Montana Farmers Union.
Christiaens tells Edward O'Brien the Agricultural Act of 2014 isn't perfect, but provides certainty to farmers and ranchers as they head into this next year of planning, planting and applying for those all-important operating loans.
