Federal farm policy must remain market-oriented to help American commodities remain competitive in the world market, a poultry industry spokesperson told Congress today. "Market-based policies will help make American agriculture stronger by laying the foundation for rewarding efficiency, encouraging productivity, managing risks and allocating resources," said Peggy Vining, vice president of international operations for Perdue Farms, Inc., of Salisbury, Maryland, speaking for the National Chicken Council and the National Turkey Federation. "To do otherwise for those of us in the global marketplace means our fundamental competitiveness is jeopardized."
