(8/10/13) The U.S. Congress headed into its August recess with no 2013 Farm Bill in sight.

Speaking with DairyBusiness Radio's Bill Baker, National Milk Producers Federation's (NMPF) Chris Galen said hope for a new Farm Bill before the current extension expires on Sept. 30 is fading. He urged dairy producers to contact their congressional representatives during the 5-week recess to call for a Farm Bill and dairy reform passage. Congress returns September 9.
