Farmers work to learn more about new farm bill

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Farmers are working to learn more about the new farm bill.

Retiring Senator Saxby Chambliss worked on four farm bill during his career said some of the main differences includes changes to the cotton program which Chambliss said is now more of a insurance oriented safety net.

“We've gone back to somewhat of a traditional program...but even there..there's a little bit of a different twist..to these programs that requires farmers to be more efficient than they have ever been and requires farmers to pay attention to the marketplace,” Saxby Chambliss, U.S. Senate.

Chambliss also served on the Ag committee, as well as chaired the senate Ag committee for two years.
