A big question for the nations' farmers is what's going to happen to the Farm Bill.
The bill is the primary agricultural and food policy tool of the federal government and is renewed every five years.
The current farm bill expires at the end of September.
Farmers still don't know the fate of the bill, which is languishing in the house....but with Congress out for a summer recess, the fate of the bill is uncertain.
Congress comes back after Labor Day.
U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown is frustrated by the lack of movement on the bill in which he provided a critical amendment while it was moving through the Senate.
The Senate version of the bill would save 23 billion dollars over the next decade, while a similar house version would cut 35 billion dollars.
