The Nebraska Corn Board applauds both the House and Senate for passing the new 5-year Farm Bill

Lincoln, Neb. – “It has been a long time coming, but we are pleased that common sense, compromise and valid concerns finally resulted in a bill that allows Nebraska farmers and ranchers to know what role the Federal government will have in their industry,” said Tim Scheer a farmer from St. Paul, Neb. and chairman of the Nebraska Corn Board.  “Farmers needed to know that programs like Foreign Market Development (FMD) and Market Access Programs (MAP) were going to be funded so we can promote our commodities around the world, which is a public/private partnership of USDA funds and checkoff dollars that come from farmers and livestock industry pockets.”
