Joe Maxwell, Co-founder and President of Farm Action, and Aaron Lehman, President of Iowa Farmers Union, will take a hard look at how the Farm Bill fuels industrial livestock production during a free virtual meeting organized by JFAN.
The 2023 Farm Bill, currently making its way through Congress, is a massive, $1.4 trillion piece of legislation negotiated every five years. For far too long, the Farm Bill has enabled factory farms and industrial agriculture to thrive.
Maxwell and Lehman presented on the 2023 Farm Bill, with Maxwell providing the national perspective and Lehman on how the bill specifically affects Iowa. A vibrant discussion between the two followed, adding greater depth and understanding of the issues.
