Dairy Defined: Dairy’s Safety Net is Best – If Farmers Use It, House Agriculture Committee Chairman Peterson Says

Mon, 20 Jul 2020 08:54:44 CDT

Dairy Defined: Dairy’s Safety Net is Best – If Farmers Use It, House Agriculture Committee Chairman Peterson Says The Dairy Margin Coverage Program and with other federal risk management programs have served farmers well during the coronavirus crisis and will continue to offer effective aid, as long as farmers participate, House Agriculture Committee Chairman Collin Peterson said in an NMPF podcast.

“Dairy now has, I think, the best safety net of any part of agriculture, especially for small dairy farmers,” said Peterson, a Democrat from Minnesota, in the podcast released today. “They, no doubt, have the best safety net that there is right now, if they utilize it.”

Peterson also said that emergency aid provided by Congress and the U.S. Department of Agriculture has been necessary to keep farmers afloat – but financial risks to farms haven’t ended. He also reflected on how politics has evolved during his time in Washington and his own place in it as one of its most conservative Democrats.
