Southern Peanut Farmers Federation Meeting

The federation between Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and now Mississippi has been a powerful advent for Georgia growers. Our issues are so similar in the southeast and having this group has significantly extended our reach on issues of common interest.

We are having a meeting of the Federation this week to discuss the issues facing us in peanut production.

We have to begin now looking toward the next farm bill. It may well be different than any we have ever had. I do think the present Administration will have an influence on the direction of farm policy but they will not be anti-farm. A lot of support may be through the use of commodities in feeding programs and the like.
