There’s one big unknown with the farm bill, will there be enough votes to pass on the House floor? “I’m skeptical of that,” said Dan Wogsland, executive director, North Dakota Grain Growers Association. “I don’t think they can get a farm bill passed in the House. I don’t think we’ll see anything, but an extension of the farm bill into 2019.”
This is a very political season, which can provide a different challenge to the farm bill. “Right now, it’s getting even more intense. As we get deeper into the election season, it’s going to be more and more difficult to get folks to vote for a farm bill and get it done on time. I’m not optimistic.”
