South Dakota Farmers Union President Doug Sombke is watching the discussions on the Agricultural Risk Coverage program and Price Loss Coverage program in both the House and Senate versions of the farm bill. “The way we’re working with ARC and PLC right now, locking in for the full period of five years, I don’t know of anyone who can do that. We’ll get the best we can get. It’s unfortunate because we’re seeing conservation get a cut from the last farm bill. I don’t think that’s the way to go either, especially in terms of oversupply.”
