House Passes Farm Bill, Senate Approval Expected

Thursday, January 30, 2014
On January 29, 2013, The House of Representatives passed a multi-year Farm Bill known as the Agricultural Act of 2014. The bill will set national agriculture policy and reauthorize many U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) programs for the next five years. The horse industry is not as dependent on programs authorized by the Farm Bill as other segments of American agriculture. However, several programs important to the horse industry are reauthorized by the bill, including livestock disaster programs, the Market Access Program, and the Environmental Quality Incentives Program. ***Courtesy of the American Horse Council
