American farmers play an integral role in feeding the world today. In fact, they have been for generations. Since 1960, the United States has exported more agricultural products than we have imported. U.S. farmers feed our families, our neighbors, our communities, our states, our country and the world, too. But that could change if American farms don’t stay competitive. If you’ve been around a while, you might notice that there are not many stories of famine anymore.
