NEOSHO —  Representative Bill Reiboldt spoke with more than 200 farmers and agriculture experts earlier this week about the “Right to Farm” Bill. The issue passed the Missouri House and Senate last session and is now expected to be placed on the 2014 General Election Ballot. Reiboldt says the Bill gives farmers in the state a constitutional guarantee to farm land and raise livestock in a humane way. He says it also protects farmers against too many rules and will help keep prices down for the average consumer.

“Whenever you have regulations put on agriculture and on production then naturally, that could be passed on to the consumer,” says Reiboldt, 160th District Missouri State Representative.

Voters will decide on the right to farm bill in November 2014.
