The National Farmers Union (NFU) was busy in 2017 with a lot of Ag policy issues to deal with. NFU President Roger Johnson said 2017 was a tough year in Ag policy as Washington, D.C., has been a very chaotic place. That made policy victories a little harder to come by.
Johnson says many in Washington D.C. are calling the recently-passed tax reform bill a victory but the Farmers Union sees it differently.
There are things in the upcoming farm bill that need fixing but Johnson questions how much money will be available.
As he looks ahead to farm bill development, there is some good news.
