Kind Concerned No Farm Bill
The expiration of the provisions of the 2008 farm bill on September 30th is close to a national catastrophe. The words of Congressman Ron Kind, who says we need a new Farm Bill and Milk Income Loss Contract program and soon.
The MILC program gives support to dairy farmers when market prices fall before certain levels. And since last October, Wisconsin farmers received 75 million dollars from the milk program, twice as much as any other state. For a number of Badger State producers, the cut off made a rough year even worse.
