Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar is looking to put more of a focus on dairy in the Senate version of the farm bill. “We’re looking at what we have for crop insurance and applying it to dairy. That’s some of the work that’s been done and needs to be done. It was done outside the farm bill. There are some farmers who say they’re grateful for the changes, it will be helpful, but everyone knows it’s not everything we need to do.”
