GRASSLEY TAKES USDA TO TASK

Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, Tuesday said the USDA was “just pandering to big corporations,” when the agency announced it wouldn’t implement an Obama-era rule designed to protect the rights of farmers who raise chickens, cows and hogs under contract for U.S. meat processors. “They aren’t interested in the family farmer,” Grassley said. “The USDA is the U.S. Department of Agriculture, not the U.S. Department of Big Agribusiness.” (Des Moines Register)
