I’ve written three farm bills during my time in Congress, having served on both the House and Senate Agriculture Committees. The 2018 farm bill will be my fourth. I know what it takes to get these farm bills across the finish line, and I know the hard-working farmers and ranchers who will be affected once we do. Throughout 2017, I rolled out seven incremental farm bill proposals that cover most titles of the overall bill. Conservation, commodity, livestock, forestry – you name it. I would encourage everyone to stay tuned as we unveil additional proposals that would help change and improve existing programs and create new ones, too.

I look forward to hearing from you throughout this process as we write the next farm bill. Your input will be critical.
