-- How Will You Use This Story? --


(OPEN):
GOING INTO A NEW "FARM BILL"-NEGOTIATION--NOW MORE THAN EVER--IT'S TIME FOR FARMERS, ACROSS THE NATION, TO UNITE.  THAT'S ACCORDING TO VINCENT "ZIPPY" DUVALL--THE PRESIDENT OF THE "AMERICAN FARM-BUREAU FEDERATION"--WHO ADDS THAT IT'S FOR THE BENEFIT OF ALL AMERICANS...

(DUVALL):
"
IT'S SO IMPORTANT FOR OUR FARMERS, RANCHERS, AND ALL THE AG-ORGANIZATIONS TO UNDERSTAND THAT WE NEED TO WORK BEHIND CLOSED DOORS, TO FIND COMMON GROUND ON THE ISSUES THAT FACE AGRICULTURE: THE 'FARM BILL' BEING ONE OF THEM; REGULATION BEING ONE; TRADE BEING ONE.  WE CALL IT A 'FARM BILL'; IT'S REALLY A 'FOOD-SECURITY BILL'.  IT'S A 'FOOD-SECURITY BILL' FOR ALL AMERICANS.  AND, IT'S A SMALL INVESTMENT THAT EVERYBODY MAKES, INTO A PROGRAM THAT ASSURES THAT FARMERS AND RANCHERS CAN MAKE IT FROM ONE CROP TO THE NEXT--IF THERE ARE SITUATIONS LIKE MARKETING-DIFFICULTIES, DEPRESSED PRICES, OR EVEN A NATURAL DISASTER.  SO, IT IS A SMALL PRICE TO PAY, TO MAKE SURE THAT OUR FOOD IS PRODUCED HERE IN AMERICA--WHERE WE KNOW THAT IT'S SAFE.  AND, THE GENERAL PUBLIC CAN UNDERSTAND HOW IMPORTANT THAT IS."

(CLOSE):
