Crop Insurers Battle Image in Farm Bill Debate

After the humbling 195-234 farm bill defeat on the floor of the U.S. House last week, anguished ag groups are encouraging their members to contact their representatives to press for another chance at passage.

Texas is struggling in the face of a multi-year drought that has devastated cattle herds and crops, but surprisingly 15 of the state's 36 legislators voted against the bill. This week's Stalk Talk e-newsletter from the Corn Producers Association of Texas politely encouraged its members to contact representatives and discuss the significance of a 5-year bill.
