NASF and hundreds of signees urge support for conservation title in Farm Bill

NASF and nearly 650 landowners, farmers, ranchers, forest managers, agricultural and forest businesses, hunters and anglers, local and state government officials, and non-profit organizations recently sent a letter to Congressional leaders on the House and Senate Committees on Agriculture to express strong support for the conservation title of the U.S. Farm Bill. Recognizing that deliberations needed to re-authorize the Farm Bill in 2012 will be particularly difficult given the need to reduce federal government spending, the Conservation Title "can continue to meet vital national needs while sharing in budget reductions," according to the letter.
