NCBA Gives House-Passed Farm Bill Mixed Reviews
The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association is giving the House-passed farm legislation mixed reviews. NCBA says the bill contains many improvements for cattlemen – such as increased funding for conservation programs and some modest fixes to the mandatory country-of-origin labeling law – but says flaws remain within the bill. The group says that includes an Adjusted Gross Income cap and payment limitations for conservation. NCBA says the language makes many ranchers ineligible for farm bill conservation programs.
