Farm and Bldgs

Decorah, Iowa – The Iowa Farmers Union will hold listening sessions in Decorah along with two other cities this week that will focus on the Farm Bill, especially preserving the so-called safety net and a strong risk management program. Farmers Union president Aaron Lehman says producers across Iowa are very concerned about those and other issues in the upcoming incarnation of the important legislation.

He says another area of the Farm Bill that needs attention is conservation.

Lehman says producers are also worried about possible spending cuts that could affect Farm Bill programs.

The meeting will be held on Wednesday (August 23rd) at 1 P-M in Decorah. Other meetings are planned for Thursday (August 24th) at 10 A-M in Washington and Friday (August 25th) at 10 A-M in Orient. Learn more at: iowafarmersunion.org.
