FarmFirst Commends USDA’s Direct Payment PlanFarmFirst Dairy Cooperative commends the Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue and the USDA on their direct payment plan under the $16 billion Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP) for U.S. producers, which is open for sign-ups at Farm Service Agencies (FSA) beginning on May 26th .
“FarmFirst has been advocating that funds need to be made available for farmers quickly, so we commend the USDA for making these plans as direct payments to producers as well as receiving 80% of the funds within a week of signing up for the program,” says John Rettler, dairy farmer of Neosho, Wis. and president of FarmFirst. “As it was described during President Trump’s press conference, farmers are the very first link in the food supply chain. Supporting U.S. farmers ultimately supports the entire food chain.”
