    The Nebraska economy is based on cattle and production agriculture, and I will fight to empower our cattlemen and farmers in the 2007 Farm Bill.  The Farm Bill should protect our rich tradition of the family farm.  Also, the Farm Bill needs to recognize agriculture's role in producing fuel (ethanol and biodiesel), and ensure a reliable volume of agricultural product for this noble purpose.

    Our trade policies must open markets for our agricultural products, not just allow other nations to import their goods into the United States.  Those trade agreements must have specific and enforceable penalties when a country unfairly refuses our products as Japan did to our beef and Europe has done to our grain.
