President Obama Signs 2014 Farm Bill

10 February 2014

US - National Farmers Union (NFU) President Roger Johnson has said the president’s signature on the 2014 Farm Bill brings closure to a 'long process of negotiations, sacrifice and compromise'.

"The result is a solid piece of legislation that provides an adequate safety net in times of need, aids the hungry, protects the environment, creates jobs, keeps Country-of-Origin Labeling (COOL) intact and helps bolster rural economies," said Mr Johnson.

“I am pleased that we now have certainty for our family farmers, ranchers, fishermen and hungry Americans. NFU will continue to work with the administration and policymakers on the implementation of this bill so that the US agriculture industry can continue to provide feed, fiber and fuel for our country and the world.”
