Enough Is Enough Tour

Farmers and ranchers are demanding a fair farm bill.


Farmers and ranchers are gathering to protest government policies that favor the largest food industry giants as the national “Enough Is Enough Tour” surges across the U.S. this spring.

With Congress preparing to debate the farm bill during prime planting and calving season, restricting farmers’ and ranchers’ ability to bring their voices to Washington D.C., farm groups will gather at events in six states to call on Congress to deliver a bill that levels the playing field.

The Enough Is Enough Tour is a unified platform for farmers and ranchers to voice the disastrous impacts of the current system on their lives and livelihoods, and to demand reforms that bring prosperity and fair competition to agriculture. The tour is endorsed by 16 farm organizations and sponsored and organized by Farm Action and Farm Action Fund.


A major focus of the tour is to highlight corruption in government checkoff programs, which collect one billion dollars from producers annually. Checkoff programs have funded famous promotional campaigns like “Beef. It’s What’s for Dinner” and “Pork. The Other White Meat.”

Started as a way for farmers to voluntarily pool their money to boost the overall sales of their products, checkoff programs have evolved into a behind-the-scenes government machine extracting money from farmers against their will — and then funneling it to corporate lobbyists.

America’s farmers and ranchers are being forced to pay into checkoff programs, only to see their dollars used against them by lobbying organizations representing the world’s largest meatpackers and grain traders. Learn more about checkoff program corruption.

The Opportunities for Fairness in Farming Act (OFF Act) would restore transparency and accountability to checkoff programs, and keep them out of the hands of lobbying organizations. Visit our political partner Farm Action Fund and tell your legislators to support the inclusion of the OFF Act in the upcoming farm bill.
