WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Texas Farmers Union members joined nearly 250 farmers, ranchers, and fishermen from across the country in Washington, D.C., Sept. 12-14, for the National Farmers Union Annual Legislative Fly-In.

“Meeting with our representatives in Congress allowed us to personalize the issues currently affecting rural Americans,” Texas Farmers Union President Wes Sims said. “Meeting face-to-face with the policy makers and voicing our concerns and possible solutions is one of the most important ways we can make a difference for all family farmers and ranchers. This includes discussing the importance of safety nets, which protect farmers and ranchers during tough times.”

Farmers Union members urged members of Congress to consider the importance of family farmers and ranchers when writing the 2012 Farm Bill. Members discussed Farmers Union priorities for the next omnibus agricultural legislation, including the importance of safety net programs.

In addition to the safety net, other 2012 Farm Bill priorities include buffer stocks, risk management, conservation and energy issues, and ensuring agriculture programs do not face unwise or excessive cuts.

“The next farm bill will also certainly have less money than the current Farm Bill, so it is critical that we meet with lawmakers and discuss our top priorities for the legislation,” Sims said. “We won’t get everything we want, but we hope to at least get everything we need in the next farm bill to ensure that America’s family farmers and ranchers are protected during difficult times and that we keep more money in rural America.”

Texas Farmers Union has been working since 1902 to protect and enhance the economic well-being and quality of life for family farmers, ranchers, and rural communities through advocating grassroots-driven policy positions adopted by its membership.
