Congressman Luke Messer

Representing the 6th District of Indiana

Agriculture

Farming is hard work that is vital to Indiana. The agriculture industry contributes almost $38 billion a year to Indiana’s economy and supports nearly 190,000 jobs. Yet, like many other employers, Indiana’s agriculture industry faces too many federal regulations and a complex risk-management system that makes their work harder and our food more expensive. Farmers need certainty and programs that help them provide safe and affordable products while supporting jobs that help Hoosiers feed their own families. That’s why I supported the Farm Bill that will provide stability for hardworking farmers for the next five years.
