    Breaking down the farm bill



    The President recently told 'Focus on Rural America' that he "signed a good farm bill, which is helping the agricultural sector, and part of the farm bill is the conservation title, which encourages farmers and landowners to set aside land for wildlife restoration, for land protection."

    Senator Kerry has also been supportive of the farm bill. But many farming organizations across America think we could do better.

    So, what is the current farm bill? and how can we fix it?

    Join us this week with host Jerry Kay, publisher of the Environmental News Network, as we learn more about the good, the bad, and the future of the US Farm Bill.


    This Week's Guests:

    George Naylor — President National Family Farm Coalition




    Jimmy Daukas — VP, American Farmland Trust
