1995 farm bill: American family farmers and ranchers at risk


World Farmers' Times 10(4): 3-4
1995 farm bill: American family farmers and ranchers at risk
Options for achieving a fair and effective farm price support system in the 1995 farm bill are limited by two powerful forces: intense pressure to reduce federal expenditure on nearly all non-defense budget items, and the philosophical outlook of the new majority leadership in Congress. The move is increasingly towards a reduction in price support and ultimately a free market. However, farm incomes continue to fall, with 88% of farmers' income now coming from off-farm sources.
