Wareham: The Next Farm Bill Needs Your Attention

Agriculture leaders in Congress are working on the 2018 farm bill. Major issues that could affect the economic health of agriculture over the next decade need 
adequate attention. 

Organizations like the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA), State Farm Bureaus and Farm Credit Council have been working for some time to preserve and protect programs like crop insurance and stimulate awareness of our growing need to protect global commerce and provide equal access to technology. 

Maintaining a resurgent global trade environment is vital for all of agriculture, and more specifically to this readership, the preservation of current and potential beef export markets. A substantial trade barrier caused by preventable events, such as a major disease outbreak, warrant pre-emptive measures. At present, NCBA is insistent upon strategies to be included in the next farm bill to help mitigate the devastating effects of a foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) outbreak. Interruptions to global beef commerce fueled by confirmed cases could be catastrophic. NCBA estimates more than $6 billion in potential losses within the first year. 

NCBA is also focused intently on strategies for rebuilding an obsolete supply and distribution system to meet the required level of response needed if an outbreak were to occur. Waiting for access to an already limited world supply of FMD vaccine is not a viable option. The substantial economic hardship caused by limited access to ready-to-administer FMD doses on U.S. farmers, ranchers and consumers would far outweigh the funding needed to modernize our national vaccine bank and outbreak response infrastructure. 

Early language of this next bill is also aiming to make greater investments in our nation’s rural technological infrastructure. One example is by providing fair and seamless access to broadband for rural residents and specifically farm and ranch families. 

Broadband has been considered a normal amenity within most non-rural households in this country for some time. However, a substantial portion of our nation’s rural families still lack advantageous access to quality sources. My home state of Missouri ranks 42nd in the nation with regard to equitable access to broadband service. More than 61% of rural Missouri households lack access to fixed broadband connections. 

Providing farm and ranch families quality high-speed internet can super charge their business through the adaptation of previously inaccessible management solutions, technologies and, most importantly, educational resources. The youth of agriculture, need to have the same fair access to technology as their non-rural counterparts. 

Take a moment to contact your elected representatives. Let them know it’s time to take the restrictor plate off rural agriculture by investing in common sense disease prevention solutions that safeguard trade. It’s also time to create an infrastructure that will provide frictionless access to quality broadband internet.

Dr joy is a trust worthy spell caster and he will be of great help to you. I never believed in spell casting but After 4 years of marriage my husband left me because I lost my womb, and i was unable to give birth to children. I felt like my life has come to an end, and i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time, but thanks to this spell caster called Dr joy whom i met online after my friend Becky Ross told me how he also helped her to bring back her husband in less than 2 days. I believed her and decided to give Dr joy a try and i contacted him on his email joylovespell@gmail.com. and explained my problems to him. He laughed and told me that In less than 2 days, my Husband will come back to me again, and that he will restore my womb and i will give birth to children.

At my early 40’s, as a wife and mother that has enjoyed a peaceful and successful marriage for 15 years, I vividly saw the failure and success of my parent’s failed marriage, why it fell apart for almost 30 years.
As an adult, I learned that my parent can be united again spiritually. Eventhough other method failed over the years I stood tall and intervene with determination.
On my quest to achieving spiritual intervention, I met Dr. Wakina Love Temple via: dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com who clarified my vision and mission by pointing out thoroughly the reasons why my parent couldn’t settle in marriage and why they couldn’t find love elsewhere.
Tears of joy rushed down our faces days after the completion of the spell as our Dad traveled over 2,000km to make peace with our Mom. It was a beginning of a new era watching them grow old together forever in love.
We couldn’t thank Dr. Wakina enough for visualizing our dream and adding more years to our parent.
At the end, I learned that it’s always good to put your visions into practice.
