Farm Bill Hits Snag on Dairy Policy

The nation’s farm bill has apparently hit another snag over a longstanding dispute on dairy policy.

Today on Lubbock’s First News, Congressman Randy Neugebauer commented on House Agriculture Ranking Member Collin Peterson’s (D-Minnesota) support of a new program offering farmers profit-margin insurance for dairy producers and would require producers who voluntarily enter the program to agree to cut milk production if the price should fall below a set amount.

Peterson and House Speaker John Boehner have tangled several times over the specifics of national dairy policy and the content of the farm bill.

Ag Committee Chairman Frank Lucas said that the lead conferees have been working on a compromise that would satisfy both Boehner and Peterson but they are just not there yet.

If no compromise is reached, the Senate could vote for an extension of the current farm bill which could last 90 days. You can listen to Neugebauer’s full comments on the status of the farm bill on KFYO.com.
