Armchair Farmers Don’t Feed the USA

Washington--In “Armchair Farmers Don’t Feed the USA: Opposing View,” an  opinion piece in USA Today, American Farm Bureau Federation President Bob Stallman writes that farm bills are written for the bad times, not the good.

Further, “Congress—with the help of farmers—has taken major steps to reform farm policy and cut federal spending,” Stallman notes. “While everyone has their opinions, including armchair farmers, it’s those who are actually working the land and taking significant risks who feed our nation,” he concluded.
