The critical mass that has come about means big changes are ahead for anyone looking to the federal government for aid, comfort or money. Agriculture is on the front burner. A bill is working its way through the process for both houses of Congress that would make cuts in conservation pro- grams at a time when Democrats want to expand them, and would kill country-of-origin labeling for meats through the remaining life of the 2002 Farm Bill, again the opposite of what Democrats want to see. Where do farmers stand on those issues? It's hard to say because traditionally producers are conservative and generally support low taxes, less intrusion in their decision-making. But, farmers are one of the few con- servative groups that also derive huge benefit from the coffers of the U.S. Government. These so- called subsidies level the playing fields for U.S. producers in world trade, and our subsidies pale in significance, to many other nations'. The dilemma for farmers is whether to support these cuts as fiscal prudence or to deride them as harmful to the land and to agriculture in general. For Democrats it is the latter, for most (but not all) Republicans it is the former. Farmers fall some- where in the middle in most cases, I would bet. That makes what happens next confusing and painful. Regardless of where farmers fall politically, the power rests with the conservatives, so a com- mittee of senators and represen- tatives is looking hard at an appropriations bills that will limit spending on the Conserva- tion Security program (CSP), to $259 million in Fiscal 2006, which started Oct. 1. Right now, the USDA is operating on a continu- ing resolution that allows it to fund the program. The original CSP was written into the 2002 bill without spend- ing caps and it was to have been as near to an entitlement pro- gram as modern legislation can get, rewarding producers who raise crops and livestock using resource-conserving methods. But, things have changed. Congress riding high under its new paradigm has cut CSP sever- al times so that the USDA has limited the program to just cer- tain watersheds, with plans to expand to all watershed within eight years. The joint bill mak- ing the rounds now will limit the vision even more. Country-of-origin labeling, which was also mandated in 2002's bill, looks to be dead if the joint appropriations bill passes. A back-room deal delayed imple- mentation two more years, until September 2008 for red meat. So far, COOL has only gone into effect for seafood. Again, farmers fall on both sides of that issue too, but con- servative outlooks might say that COOL is intrusive into pro- ducer's ability to run their oper- ation the way they see fit. Others might believe we need COOL to better assure our trade partners that our meats are excellent and assure our home consumers of the same. Years ago, the NFO found that organizing farmers was nigh on to impossible because of their fierce independence. It has always been an oddment of polit- ical life that farmers are so inde- pendent and yet so utterly dependent upon major govern- ment stipends. Strides have been made toward a market-drive approach for agri- culture, but such a paradigm does not help conserve our vital farmland and the soil and water that make it so valuable, and tak- ing away incentives for farmers to participate in world trade is a harsh way to further cut down on the number of farmers and the families they might raise on the land, the towns they may support and the way of life they represent. But, when the money is gone....what then? I'll see ya!
