AFR President Terry Detrick Talks on Farm Bill's Unique Importance to Oklahoma Farmers This Year

Thu, 14 Jun 2018 14:40:58 CDT

AFR President Terry Detrick Talks on Farm Bill's Unique Importance to Oklahoma Farmers This Year American Farmers & Ranchers President Terry Detrick sat down with AFR’s Sam Knipp this week to share his thoughts on the Senate Agriculture Committee’s recent action to move their version of the 2018 Farm Bill through committee and to the Floor for full Senate consideration. You can listen to their complete conversation to hear Detrick speak on that subject and offer an update on his personal wheat crop this year, by clicking or tapping the LISTEN BAR below at the bottom of the page.


“It appears the Senate version is pretty much like what we have been, with a few minor adjustments and a few extra perks where they’re really needed,” he said, pointing to dairy as one of those areas. “The fact that the Senate was able to come up with a bipartisan proposal, I think is a good step.”


Detrick says farmers are “intent and drastically” in need of certainty regarding what provisions this Farm Bill will make available to them for the future. With the Senate’s rapid movement on advancing a Farm Bill proposal, Detrick is hopeful that momentum foreshadows the realization of the possibility that a finished Farm Bill will be signed into law this year, on time.


“That’ll be quite the accomplishment,” he remarked. “We need to get her going and it looks like we’re on track to do that. I applaud Congress for their hard work on it.”


In emphasis of this Farm Bill’s importance to farmers, specifically in Oklahoma, Detrick pointed out the hardship that has resulted from extended drought conditions that have settled squarely on our state.


“This year, we’re in the heart of the drought,” he said. “This Farm Bill will likely be the difference between someone being able to put down a crop or having to liquidate.”
