CINCINNATI -- Despite its name, the Farm Bill isn’t just for farmers.
It’s a broad piece of legislation that affects everything from the price of milk and beef to federal nutrition programs for the nation’s poor families and senior citizens.

Brown spoke with WCPO’s Brendan Keefe Thursday about the issue.
