Kentucky Farm Bureau News - February 2012

National Farm Policy should be rewritten this year to establish a program that protects farmers from catastrophic revenue losses by using a flexible combination of fiscally responsibile tools, said voting delegates at AFBF's 93rd Annual Meeting. KFB had 26 delegates.

In approving policy for 2012, the farmers and ranchers endorsed a multi-pronged proposal, including a provision for catastophic revenue loss protection that works with a flexible range of crop insurance products, as well as amending the current farm bill's marketing loan provisions to better reflect market values.
