DELAWARE, Ohio – Ohio Corn & Wheat Growers Association (OCWGA) announced their support of the efforts by Senators John Thune (R-S.D.) and Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) to improve the lives of America’s farmers. The Senators have proposed a series of changes to commodity programs aimed at making the Agriculture Risk Coverage program better for American farmers.
Jed Bower, President of the Ohio Corn and Wheat Growers Association and a farmer from Washington Court House, released the following statement:
“The Ohio Corn & Wheat Growers Association applauds the bi-partisan effort from Senators John Thune and Sherrod Brown to find ways to improve upon the farm safety net for farm families across the country. The Agriculture Risk Coverage Improvement and Innovation (ARC-II) Act is a step in the right direction to make the farm safety net more responsive to both the needs of farmers and real market conditions. We look forward to a productive discussion on the future of the next Farm Bill in the Senate, and the eventual renewal of a Farm Bill for our country before its expiration on September 30.”
