Delegates of American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) in Nashville, Tennessee, this week fine-tuned the organizations policy book for the year, to include improvements in the farm bill. AFBF Public Policy Executive Director Dale Moore says AFBF members want changes to the cotton and dairy programs in the next farm bill.
AFBF also seeks an improved Agriculture Risk Coverage program to decrease risk management disparities across counties. Other policies include ending sunsets on trade agreements, labor issues, and ending the use of non-GMO labels on products that do not have GMO alternatives.
Moore says the policy set by AFBF delegates makes a difference in Washington, D.C.
Delegates also unanimously re-elected AFBF President Zippy Duvall to a two-year term.
