Farmers Union features farm bill tweaks in special orders of business

The National Farmers Union has approved six special orders of business, prioritizing fairness for farmers, dairy policy reform, cooperative business models and the farm bill.

NFU President Rob Larew says the organization supports an increase in reference prices and tweaks to crop insurance in the next farm bill.

“While making sure crop insurance remains strong, are there ways to craft that in such a way that farmers are encouraged to continue to take advantage of crop insurance and we might find some savings there?”

He says a competition title in the farm bill is still a priority.
