The American Farm Bureau Federation says its members are focusing on the next farm bill. Micheal Clements has more.

Clements: AFBF is turning its attention to the development of the 2018 Farm Bill. Farmers and ranchers are pushing for an early start to farm bill negotiations and AFBF chief economist Bob Young says they’ve already started discussions at the grassroots level.

Young: We’ve got the Farm Bill Working Group. We’ve got a number of state staff that we brought in, and have had lengthy discussions on all the whole issues around the farm bill. Not just title one and what we’re going to do on cotton, but lengthy discussions about rural America, what it takes to live there, and just all the titles of the Farm Bill.
