2018 Farm Bill to Stretch Every Dollar; Changes to Canada Dairy

**Members of the Senate Ag Committee say they’ll need to stretch every dollar allocated in the 2018 Farm Bill.

Regardless of the crops they grow, the Michigan farmers who testified at a Farm Bill hearing Saturday said a strong safety net program was at the top of their priority list.

Janna Fritz, who, raises corn, soybeans, and dry edible beans in Eastern Michigan, urged a continuation of programs that provide that safety net like crop insurance and commodity safety nets.

Ranking Member Debbie Stabenow says when writing the 2018 Farm Bill, Ag Committees will be asked to do more with less.

**A crop protection industry official is calling for an efficient and effective EPA Office of Pesticide Programs.

CropLife America senior director of government affairs Kelly Bray says the regulatory process is critical to registrants and the growers who use those products.

Speaking to farm broadcasters Wednesday, EPA administrator Scott Pruitt said his agency is addressing a backlog of more than 1,000 chemicals waiting for approval.

Bray tells Brownfield the Pesticide Registration Improvement Act has been beneficial and needs to be renewed.

**The communications director for Associated Milk Producers says more changes to Canadian dairy policy will likely impact producers across the U.S. and beyond.

Sarah Schmidt says alongside utra-filtered milk, Canada also instigated a new class for the skim milk powder products, increasing butter-fat demand and milk production in Canada.

She says Canada plans to use that supply to meet domestic needs
