As the U.S. House of Representatives continues to undertake consideration of the 2012 Farm Bill, it is clear that many producer groups favor a different approach than that taken by the U.S. Senate on April 26.  This reality was reported in an recent article authored by Daniel Looker titled, “More Groups Back Commodity Program Choices.”

The article reports that members of various farm groups “told a House Agriculture subcommittee Thursday that they support giving producers choices of commodity programs in the next farm bill, instead of the approach taken by the Senate Agriculture Committee to rely mainly on a shallow loss revenue programs.”

Groups involved in the U.S. House Hearings include the National Association of Wheat Growers, the American Soybean Association, the Southern Peanut Farmers Federation, and the National Farmers Union.
