On behalf of the Campaign for Family Farms and the Environment, we are writing to urge you to reform a Farm Bill conservation program that promotes industrialized concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) at the expense of independent U.S. family farms, rural communities, taxpayers, and our natural resources and food supply. In this difficult farm economy, it is critical that public money is spent wisely, reaching the most family farmers. But too often, Farm Bill programs support corporate interests—including corporate-controlled industrial livestock operations. As you work to write the next Farm Bill, we urge you to consider several important changes to the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP).
