Ag Groups Excited about New Sustainable Farming Coalition

Farm groups that represent millions of farmers and ranchers across the country have come together to form a new coalition called Farmers for a Sustainable Future.

It’s a coalition committed to environmental and economic sustainability. One of the ag groups is the American Soybean Association. 

Their CEO, Ryan Findlay, says, “Soybean farmers have an awesome story to tell, including their sustainability initiatives, so it’s great to be able to collaborate with like-minded organizations to facilitate sound policy and program decisions and have a platform to share our efforts.” 

The National Council of Farmer Cooperatives also joined the coalition. 

Chuck Conner, President and CEO of the NCFC, says, “This effort is important as policymakers at both the state and federal levels, and our partners in the value chain develop programs to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and address climate change.” 

National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Vice President of Government Affairs Ethan Lane says, “Twenty-one agricultural groups are now standing side-by-side in unity to correct a false narrative that’s haunted us for as long as I can remember.” 

The National Pork Producers Council says farmers and ranchers are “committed stewards of the land” and leading the way in climate-smart farming.
