U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar has announced the implementation of a new Farm Bill provision she authored to help beginning farmers and ranchers.
The USDA is implementing new programs recently passed in the Farm Bill that will strengthen the financial security of new farmers and ranchers. This includes Klobuchar's provision to eliminate payment reductions under the Conservation Reserve Program for new and beginning farmers.
Klobuchar says the recent floods across Minnesota are a stark reminder of the unpredictable and volatile nature of farming and ranching.
