During a recent agriculture roundtable featuring Congressman Kelly Armstrong and the Minot Chamber of Commerce, Senator John Hoeven, a prominent figure in agricultural policy, shared his goals for the forthcoming Farm Bill.

As a leading member of the Senate Agriculture Committee and the Senate Agriculture Appropriations Committee, Hoeven is dedicated to ensuring the legislation fully supports the nation's farmers and ranchers.

Hoeven's vision for the Farm Bill includes several critical areas:

-Bolstering crop insurance to provide a robust risk management tool for producers.

-Making higher levels of insurance coverage more affordable, helping farmers navigate natural disasters without resorting to emergency aid.

-Refining counter-cyclical safety nets like the ARC and PLC programs to better reflect current market conditions and production costs.

-Expanding access to credit by updating Farm Service Agency loan limits.

-Integrating the Livestock Disaster Relief Act into the Farm Bill to enhance support for ranchers during natural disasters.

-Streamlining regulations to make agricultural programs more flexible and less burdensome for farmers.

Senator Hoeven emphasized the importance of the Farm Bill in supporting the agricultural sector, highlighting his commitment to making the legislation work for those on the front lines of food production.

By focusing on these priorities, Hoeven aims to ensure that the Farm Bill continues to provide a strong safety net for America's agricultural community, enabling them to maintain the country's high-quality, affordable food supply.
