One Step Away From Helping Farmers Stay in Business

Newsroom / August 2, 2019

The following statement may be attributed to American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall:

“With farm bankruptcies at a record high in some regions of the country, Senate passage of the Family Farmer Relief Act sends an important signal to family farmers and ranchers that our elected officials are willing to act in these challenging times. The bill gives more farmers an opportunity to qualify for financial restructuring so they can keep their land and livelihoods. We are eager for the President’s signing of this bill and appreciate the leadership of Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and all the cosponsors for their support of America’s farmers and ranchers.”
