A beautiful Fall season is upon us. And for that, we give thanks. Apples, cranberries, pumpkins, corn, squash and delicious recipes from Grandma and Auntie to enjoy. Yet all of this cannot be enjoyed by All if we don't fund our food security programs and protect our farmers, our crops, our animals, our air, our waters and soils. Sadly, this does not seem to be a priority on the horizon. The looming deadline for the Farm Bill is upon us - with no replacement Farm Bill in sight.
How does the flooding in our region affect our livestock, our crops, our farms? And what can farmers, ranchers, and growers do to help mitigate the impact and prepare for these changed weather patterns?
