Action Alert for Farmers & Ranchers:
Sign on to a letter calling for the next Farm Bill to be a Climate Bill!
Farmers and ranchers: Will you add your name to a letter supporting the Agriculture Resilience Act (ARA)? This bill lays out a package of resources that farmers and ranchers need to implement climate-friendly farming practices on their operations—resources such as incentive programs, research, and risk management tools. Demonstrating widespread support for the ARA will influence next year’s debates in Congress about the Farm Bill.
If you are a farmer or rancher, please take 30 seconds to show your support. We are aiming to gather more than 2,000 signatures nationwide.
Sign the letter here.

The 2022 Census of Agriculture is here!
This is your chance to have a voice in the future of agriculture in our state and the U.S. The ag census is required by law, but more importantly, good data means good decisions about policies, programs, disaster assistance, finance, and more. If you only fill out one survey this year, this is the one to do. USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) mailed an invitation to respond online to the 2022 Census of Agriculture on November 22. A paper questionnaire will follow in December and responses are due February 6, 2023 either online, by mail, or telephone.
Respond online here.
