A joint statement by NFFC and Rural Coalition on the Senate farm bill.
The Senate is expected to approve Perdue easily, but the question of his loyalty — to family farmers or to agribusiness — is imperative given the gravity of the economic situation facing rural America.
Forty-five organizations signed on to a letter urging Senators Pryor and Blunt to fully fund programs for veterans who are now in agriculture and the Military Veterans Agricultural Liaison office during the current appropriations process.

Letter to Congress on the serious financial crisis experienced by the majority of U.S. dairy farmers
NFFC signed on with nearly 140 organizations to a letter in support of the efforts of the Agriculture Committees to reform and update Farm Bill Programs and to work towards policies that will cultivate an equitable and sustainable food system.
NFFC denounced today’s Senate Agriculture Subcommittee hearing on the dairy crisis for failing to spotlight the voices of real family dairy farmers and instead relying on the same corporate processors and giant dairy cooperatives who have created the current economic disaster.
