AFBF is collecting feedback from farmers through its USDA Program Survey. The survey focuses on programs from the Farm Service Agency, the Natural Resources Conservation Service and Rural Development. Dr. Lisa Benson, AFBF’s director of rural development explained in Thursday’s Newsline (January 21, 2016) how the survey provides farmers with the opportunity to help improve USDA programs.
“Our goal here is to learn really what people’s experiences are, whether they’re good bad or ugly,” Benson said. “We want it to be honest feedback and what’s wonderful is USDA is asking us for this feedback. They really want to learn how to improve and strengthen their programs.” All farmers and ranchers, not just Farm Bureau members, are encouraged to take the survey, which takes about 10 minutes to complete.   To take the survey, please click here.
