Northwest Iowa Dairy Outlooks

A local discussion of current science and issues concerning dairying in northwest iowa

The Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010 includes two components directly impacting ag: setting the federal estate tax rate at 35%, with a $5 million exemption; and extension of both the 45¢/gallon ethanol blender’s tax credit and the 54¢/gallon secondary import tariff on imported ethanol.

Also, Incoming chair Rep. Frank Lucas (R-Okla.) named 16 new Republican members to the House Ag Committee for the 112th Congress. They include: Rick Crawford (Ark.); Scott DesJarlais and Stephen Fincher (Tenn.); Renee Elmers (N.C.); Bob Gibbs (Ohio); Chris Gibson (N.Y.); Vicky Hartzler (Mo.); Tim Huelskamp (Kan.); Randy Hultgren and Bobby Schilling (Ill.); Reid Ribble (Wis.); Martha Roby (Ala.); Austin Scott (Ga.); Steve Southerland (Fla.); Marlin Stutzman (Ind.); and Scott Tipton (Colo.).
