“We applaud today’s final passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, and especially thank Chairman Mike Conaway for his skillful leadership that made it possible. The legislation retains many of the hard-fought provisions that were essential to cattle raisers, including authorization for a foot-and-mouth disease vaccine bank and enhancements to important conservation programs such as the Environmental Quality Incentives Program.
