Illinois farmers should contact their congressmen and demand a farm bill before the end of 2018.  Congress only has a few days to act if they hope to complete this legislation for the farmers in their states.


You can make your contact here using National Corn Growers Association’s system or call your Congressman directly at the following numbers:


Mike Bost: 202-225-5661                                       Raja Krishnamoorthi: 202-225-3711

Adjourning for the year and not finishing the farm bill would be very detrimental to Illinois farmers.   You need the safety and stability of a farm bill in this time of low prices, falling farm incomes, and trade uncertainty.  With only a few joint legislative days left, farmers need Congressional leaders to compromise on a strong, bipartisan, Farm Bill now. Tell Congress to get it done!
