New farm bill an elusive goal

Farmers and other agriculturalists on the Northern Plains are devoting most of their attention right now to the 2013 crop and young livestock. But they’re also keeping an eye on what’s happening in Washington, D.C.

The U.S. Senate is expected to consider, and possibly pass, a new farm bill on Monday. But the legislation reported faces a serious challenge in the U.S. House.

I have no idea of what will happen. ¬†What’s your best guess of when we’ll get a new farm bill?

1) This month.

2) This summer.

3) Late this year.

4) A new farm bill? Are you serious? We’ll never get one.
