During the Fall Forum of the National Conference of State Legislators, the Task Force on Agriculture invited Wayne Pacelle, CEO of the Humane Society of the United States, and Trent Loos, a sixth generation livestock producer from Nebraska to speak about the "ag gag" laws being introduced throughout the country.
Frustrated by inaction, three farm commodity organizations joined Nov. 26 to call on congressional leaders to take the right steps quickly on the 2013 farm bill or extend the 2008 law.
“We very much hope that conferees on the farm bill will find common ground that can be supported by producers of all crops in all regions of the country,” representatives of National Corn Growers Association, the American Soybean Association and the U.S. Canola Association wrote in a joint letter to farm bill principal conferees.
