Minnesota Farmers Union is committed to protecting farmers’ resources

The Minnesota Farmers Union wants to ensure that financial and emotional support for farmers remains a priority of Congress.

MFU Government Director Stu Lourey was recently asked by Brownfield that some lawmakers might consider improving net farm income and assume that the state could reduce its support for crop and livestock producers. I did.

“From my point of view, like the rest of the economy, pandemics have had a really uneven impact on people. Some people are doing really well (but). ) Some people are still upset by the record low prices for five years. “

Lurie says he believes legislators understand how cyclical agriculture is possible.

“And this year was certainly a good year, but we quickly pointed out that it was a tough year for many.”

That’s why the MFU has made strengthening the Peasant Lender Mediation Act a priority for this legislative assembly, he says. The program uses trained, neutral facilitators to provide farmers with the opportunity to renegotiate, restructure, or resolve agricultural debt.
