Farmer and rancher members are invited to help AFBF prioritize different options to improve the farm bill while also recognizing the likely budgetary challenges. This input is sought for informational purposes only; this process does not replace the organization’s regular policy development process. A survey question on commodity programs appears below.  

The last farm bill allowed farmers to reallocate (without adding to) their base acres and update their yields. AFBF’s current policy supports including another update in the next farm bill. Should farmers be allowed to update (without adding) base and yields in the next farm bill?  

Email your response – Yes, No, Undecided or Need More Information – to Mary Kay Thatcher ( with the subject line Commodity Programs.
