The next farm bill has been a major topic for many agriculture as conversations have been underway by commodity groups concerning issues that affect them. And while the next farm bill is not really expected until sometime in 2018, there are reports indicating some are considering writing a new farm bill to replace the current one and passing it a year before it expires.
