Farm subsidies such as the farm bill and the USDA support excessive farming. Meanwhile, the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) pays farmers not to farm. Now the USDA is authorizing emergency grazing on CRP lands.Citizens should become aware of another looming emergency in 2018. That is the time for the five-year renewal of the farm bill. Do not allow this renewal for the sake of sustainable farming. The pigs will squeal when not slopped at the government trough but will soon learn to farm the land and not the government.
