Wisconsin Soybean president concerned about regulations

Commodity groups are concerned about regulations handcuffing farmers.

Wisconsin Soybean president Sara Stelter says that was a big topic during the association’s annual meeting earlier this month.

“We’re always concerned on a national level about what the EPA is doing, and how that might effect some of the tools we need to farm sustainably. So of course that’s a big issue.”

Speaking to Brownfield at the Wisconsin Corn Soy Pork Expo in Wisconsin Dells earlier this month, she said there are also concerns about the privacy of family farms being compromised.

“One of my concerns is the pressure that more and more farmers are under to provide more and more information to our end market users.”

And Stelter says she’s frustrated farmers don’t seem to be getting fairly compensated for providing that information.
