On Today's Ag Perspectives Podcast- Ron Hays Talks Policy with Ethan Lane of the NCBA

Tue, 29 Nov 2022 13:30:29 CST

Today's Ag Perspectives Podcast, Oklahoma Farm Report's Ron Hays sat down and visited earlier this month with National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Vice President of Government Affairs, Ethan Lane, about the midterm elections and what that means for the US Cattle Industry.

It has been an odd election cycle, Ethan said, and there will be quite a few changes for the Ag Committee as a result.

“First and foremost, that pressure on Leader McCarthy that we are hearing about this week- the debate amongst him and the freedom caucus and how much authority he is going to sort of give up in order to become a speaker to the freedom caucus- the biggest impact that might be felt from that could very well be farm bill negotiations next year,” Lane said. “When you talk about that kind of fiscal conservative tone that we are going to hear from this new group coming in, we know some of these members are coming to Washington have sort of stridently said, ‘I am not voting for a farm bill.’ We are going to see just how serious they are about that when their constituents start calling them and telling them they want them to vote for a farm bill.”

With inflation impacting everything in the country, the farm bill package is directly impacted, Lane said, which is why the farm bill may be close to a trillion dollars.

“Whether it is the cost of food, whether it is the cost of conservation programs, whether it is the cost of FMD vaccine bank implementation, you name it, if it is in the farm bill, it costs more than it did five years ago,” Lane said.

Hays and Lane talk about the players that will be involved in the 2023 Farm Bill- and also look at several other issues that Lane and his team are following out of the Washington office of the NCBA.
