The following statement may be attributed to Iowa Farm Bureau Federation President Craig Hill:

“While IFBF appreciates that the Biden Administration’s Conserving and Restoring America the Beautiful Report (30x30) acknowledges concerns raised by agriculture, the specific details are lacking.  The report is a philosophical document, and while it recognizes farmers’ concerns about conservation and protecting personal and property rights, those acknowledgements must carry through to implementation.  Agriculture leaders will continue to work with Secretary Vilsack and USDA to ensure the plan’s details live up to the promises to protect a very productive American agriculture sector.”
