2017 was a busy year for the American Farm Bureau Federation when it came to influencing agricultural policy at the federal level. Dale Moore is executive director for public policy with the Farm Bureau and he says there were several policy victories to celebrate from last year.
There were other victories when it came to government regulations and taxes.
Going further into the new year, Moore said one of the many items the Farm Bureau will be watching is work on the nation’s infrastructure.
He says development of the 2018 Farm Bill is a huge topic for agriculture and the process was underway well before the calendar turned to the new year.
