Your future is at stake. Please call your Congressman today and urge them to support the farm bill and your future.

On Monday, Senate Republicans and Democrats bridged their partisan divide and voted to pass the Senate's version of the farm bill, moving U.S. farming one step closer to a more secure future. Now the fate of the farm bill resides in the House, where members will begin discussion on their version next week (Monday June 17). Formally known as, H.R. 1947 the Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management (FARRM) Act of 2013, passage of the House farm bill is an essential next step. Explain to your Congressman that a vote for the House farm bill is a vote for the future of your farm, your family business, and your family!

As farmers, uncontrollable factors dictate so much of our business. In a profession engulfed in uncertainty, crop insurance is a vital risk management tool. Urge your representatives to oppose any amendments that undermine the current crop insurance program. Without it, the stability of the farming sector is threatened.
