    YOHO of florida in the house of representatives Thursday, October 10, 2013 Mr. YOHO. Mr. Speaker, farmers and ranchers all over this country need certainty. Each year, farmers put their property on the line in order to feed our nation and the rest of the world.



    Agriculture is a unique enterprise, affected by both market and weather conditions. That is why we need to pass a 5 year farm bill and we need to pass it before the year is out.

    I represent the 3rd district of Florida, with thousands of acres of farmland with millions worth of production each year. This farm bill will ensure that those farmers can continue to produce the safest, most affordable food source in the world.

    Let us not forget, that a nation is not truly a nation unless it has a secure and abundant food supply--that has been the reason for the existence of the farm bill since the 1930s and it is still the reason we need a farm bill today.

    I urge all my colleagues in the House and the Senate to begin a conference so that American farmers and ranchers have the security they need for the next 5 years.
