Executive Order Creates Opportunities for Farmers and Ranchers

Fri, 09 Jul 2021 13:27:27 CDT

Executive Order Creates Opportunities for Farmers and Ranchers American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall commented today on President Joe Biden’s executive order addressing livestock markets and “right to repair.”
“AFBF notes President Biden’s effort to address several pressing issues facing America’s farmers and ranchers comes at a time when many in the farm supply chain are frustrated. Growing concern about livestock market fairness is accelerated by the continued rise in grocery store meat prices while ranchers struggle to break even on the cattle they raise and poultry farmers being locked into agreements with very little recourse if they’re underpaid. It’s time to get to the bottom of what’s driving these imbalances. More opportunities for farmers and ranchers to sell their products will ensure they are paid fairly while providing more options for America’s families.
“Farmers increasingly rely on the latest technology as they grow healthy, affordable food. Business purchases-from robotic milkers to high-tech combines-require a substantial investment, and when those tools break down farmers need to get back up and running quickly. Limiting who can work on a piece of machinery drives up costs and increases down-time. Ensuring farmers have the ability to perform cost-effective repairs on their own equipment will keep America’s farms running and financially sustainable.”
“We will closely examine the details of this executive order as we continue to work with the administration to ensure changes are consistent with our grassroots policy, and farmers and ranchers are provided greater flexibility to remain competitive in our growing economy.”
