Sec. of Agriculture Tom Vilsack this morning held a teleconference with the National Association of Farm Broadcasters about the remifications of Cap and Trade legislation on agriculture. The seceratary began with a short statement discussing the USDA and the Obama administration’s analysis of the legislation on our industry and then went directly to questions from the group.

The talking points from the administration were the same as they have been for several weeks and conversely the skepticism from the broadcasters about the legislation was palpable. Many broadcasters did not seem at all reassured by Vilsack’s statment, “We should not be affraid of this.”

We say be afraid, be very afraid.
