Farm Progress America, September 7, 2017

Max Armstrong looks at work by one senator to promote agriculture as a conservative group fights the farm bill.

Max Armstrong looks at the work of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, who is promoting his work to help farmers in the state. Max also talks about the work by Cruz to have cottonseed designated as an oilseed so those farmers can take part in the commodity title of the farm bill. Max looks at Cruz work which appears in opposition to the conservative think tank The Heritage Foundation.

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.
