Writing a farm bill is an extremely challenging activity given budget constraints, the economic importance to the U.S. agricultural sector and the American public, varying stakeholder interests and the importance to global economic and trade relationships.

Food and Agricultural Policy Research Institute (FAPRI) director Pat Westhoff discusses the economic, trade and biofuels considerations, crop and livestock market outlook, and other issues that congressional leadership and members are considering as they pen the next farm bill.

Pat provides perspective into the monumental task of writing and passing the next farm bill, market outlook and ongoing trade issues and considerations.
