NCBA President Jennifer Houston Says USDA Action Will Provide "Much-Needed Relief" to Cattlemen

Thu, 20 Jun 2019 15:23:41 CDT

NCBA President Jennifer Houston Says USDA Action Will Provide Today NCBA President Jennifer Houston issued the following statement in response to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s change to the haying and grazing date for prevented planting:



“When disaster strikes, it is good to know that livestock producers have strong allies in Washington. Today’s move by USDA will provide much-needed relief for hardworking farmers and ranchers trying to recover from this year’s planting season. NCBA worked closely with both USDA and Congress to get this change across the finish line. Under Secretary for Farm Production and Conservation Bill Northey and Risk Management Agency Administrator Martin Barbre deserve a great deal of thanks. The announcement would also not have been possible without the tireless advocacy of U.S. Representatives Dusty Johnson (R-SD) and Angie Craig (D-MN), and Senators John Thune (R-SD), Tina Smith (D-MN), and Joni Ernst (R-IA).”


Background


Today USDA's Risk Management Agency announced that it has adjusted the 2019 final haying and grazing date from November 1 to September 1, 2019 to help farmers who were prevented from planting because of flooding and excess rainfall this spring.
