Farm bill on tap at convention
The Senate passage of its version of the farm bill late last week is sure to be a source of major discussion as the state’s largest general farmer and rancher organization gathers for its annual convention in New Orleans this week.
Considering both Louisiana senators voted “no” due to the bill stripping support for Louisiana’s rice program, it’s sure to be a lively discussion at the Louisiana Farm Bureau convention. The convention will be held Thursday-Sunday at the New Orleans Marriott on Canal Street.
This farm bill will be on the plates of a lot of our farmers this week.
