Dear Secretary Vilsack,

The Campaign for Family Farms and the Environment (CFFE) is a coalition of state and national organizations, including Dakota Rural Action (SD), Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement, Land Steward Project (MN), Missouri Rural Crisis Center, Food & Water Watch and Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy. We work together to support family farmers, our rural communities, and a vibrant, sustainable food system. Through this work, we oppose the national, state, and local policies propping up corporate factory farms that are putting independent livestock producers out of business, extracting wealth from our rural communities, polluting our land, water, and air, and threatening our national security. We appreciate the opportunity to comment on “Supply Chains for the Production of Agricultural Commodities and Food Products.”
