Max Armstrong continues his look at the farm bill and its role in rural development

Max Armstrong shares some history about the farm bill, and how it has changed. The last farm bill had 356 pages, and only 22 were focused on rural development. Today rural development has become a bigger opportunity for the farm bill. Max looks at that change and what it means.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
