State group pleased with Farm Bill

For the first time in more than two years, the nation may have a formal farm aid policy soon, and a statewide group says that's good for farmers.

The House and Senate approved the Farm Bill, after several delays.

Karen Gefvert of the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation says there are several changes that will benefit the state's farmers. She says farmers will be able to buy insurance policies that kick in, if the price of milk falls too low, compared to the price of feeding dairy cows.

She says the government will also offer block grants for planting specialty crops like cranberries and ginseng. Both are major crops in Wisconsin.
