Erv Klaas, Story County Soil and Water Conservation District Commissioner, submitted an opinion article to the Ames Tribune. His thoughts about the Farm Bill are worth the read. Why Farm Bill conservation programs matter
Klaas states, “Whether you’re involved in agriculture or not, this is something that matters to all of us: the benefits of a strong Conservation Title benefit everyone. After all, we all eat, and we all need clean air and water. And with the world’s population on the rise, the sustainability of our food supply has never been more critical.”
