Farmers and farm organizations gathered in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday to rally support for a farm bill. They encouraged congress to act before current federal farm programs expire at the end of the month.

The farm bill includes a number of nutrition, environmental and research programs. California Farm Bureau representatives were on hand for the rally. They say signing a new farm bill is important for the state's farmers, ranchers and consumers.
