Max Armstrong talks the animal ag industry ag gag law in Iowa.

The animal ag industry in Iowa is trying to get an ag gag law on the books, but judges keep blocking it. A new law was written to help livestock businesses who have undercover trespassers who try to film or photograph. The ACLU says it's unconstitutional. The vice-chairwoman of the Iowa ag committee says the law is absolutely necessary.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
