Oklahoma Farmer Scott Neufeld Testifies Before House Ag Committee in Dodge City Field Hearing

Oklahoma Farmer Scott Neufeld Testifies Before House Ag Committee in Dodge City Field Hearing
Major County Farmer Scott Neufeld testified before the final House Agriculture Committee Field Hearing dealing with the 2012 Farm Bill. Neufeld and his wife Brenda have a diversified farm near Fairview- and Scott has served as the Chairman of the Farm Bill Task Force of the Oklahoma Farm Bureau. Neufeld emphasized two keys that he tried to convey to the Committee- keep crop insurance largely as it now exists- it works- and to provide a price protection program that will allow a farmer to survive a bad crop or low price year to keep farming the next season.

Neufeld told the Committee that the current mix of farm program supports with crop insurance allowed farmers in the southern plains to survive the drought of 2011 without a widespread call for any sort of ad hoc disaster assistance.

Neufeld also related the value of Direct Payments on his farm in recent years- pointing out that those payments have allowed him to invest back into his farm operation and support the community as he purchased equipment or inputs.
