National Farmers Union President and Former ND Ag Commissioner, Roger Johnson & North Dakota Farmers Union President Mark Watne join the conversation.  Johnson says he will be active in getting word out about what the farm bill means to producers.  Johnson says despite enormous dysfunction of Congress, the farm bill included things like: price protection, permanent disaster, livestock disaster, COOL, and the energy title, which are all things to be happy about it.
