Stock Growers Concerned By Farm Bill Failure In House

Stock Growers Concerned By Farm Bill Failure In House

The House failure to pass a farm bill is having an impact on South Dakota Stock Grower members, many of whom had to liquidate herds because of the last two years of drought.  Stock Grower’s Executive Director Silvia Christen says without the farm legislation there is no disaster aid for producers.

Christen says another major concern is uncertainty affecting all aspects of agriculture with no new farm bill in place.

She says forages haven’t recovered from the last two years of drought and many cattle herds were sold off at market earlier this spring
