SD Dem House Candidate Issues Farm Policies

July 10, 2012, 5:27 PM

SD Dem House Candidate Issues Farm Policies
PIERRE, SD -

Democratic U.S. House candidate Matt Varilek says the next farm bill should be designed to help family farmers and ranchers.

Varilek is challenging Republican Rep. Kristi Noem for South Dakota's lone seat in the U.S. House. He says farm programs should include caps on payments so assistance goes to family farms instead of wealthy operations.

Varilek says the farm bill should give producers a strong but fiscally responsible safety net to protect against unsustainable losses, ensure fair and transparent prices in commodity markets and provide incentives to protect land and water.

Noem, a member of the House Agriculture Committee, has said she wants to make sure the farm bill extends livestock disaster programs, discourages plowing up grassland and helps fight the mountain pine beetle infestation in the Black Hills.
