WASHINGTON (Feb. 14, 2014) - National Farmers Union (NFU) President Roger Johnson issued the following statement in response to President Obama's announcement to expedite assistance to farmers and ranchers suffering through the California drought and other recent calamities:

 

"The purpose and benefits of the recently enacted farm bill are evident once again with the extreme drought in California. Farmers, ranchers and growers are suffering through very difficult conditions. Fortunately the 2014 Farm Bill includes permanently authorized disaster programs to help those most in need. President Obama has wisely expedited the implementation of these programs, which will be made available retroactive to losses suffered in 2012 and 2013.

"Sound agriculture policy, like the livestock disaster programs, are the among the reasons NFU supported the 2014 Farm Bill. I applaud the work of the President and USDA in getting the livestock disaster programs up and running in a time when they're truly needed."

National Farmers Union has been working since 1902 to protect and enhance the economic well-being and quality of life for family farmers, ranchers and rural communities through advocating grassroots-driven policy positions adopted by its membership.
