Statement by Zippy Duvall, President, American Farm Bureau Federation, Regarding Urban Ag Act of 2016
WASHINGTON, D.C., – "Regardless of where or how America's farmers and ranchers produce food, giving them the technology and tools to succeed supports our nation's strength and security. The Urban Agricultural Act of 2016 would do that for farmers in urban settings. As an organization that supports farmers of all sizes, commodities and production systems, Farm Bureau believes this legislation will build a stronger bond among all farmers--rural, suburban and urban."
