Max Armstrong digs into the farm bill and dairy industry concerns

Max Armstrong looks at concerns that bipartisanship may be ending in the writing of the next farm bill. A key area of concern is for the dairy farmer including a dairy margin protection program; which was a flop. Farmers paid in $96 million in premiums and received just $12 million in payments even as the industry suffers from very low prices.

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.
