Kay Doby’s Testimony Before the House Subcommittee on Livestock, Dairy and Poultry (PDF) – Doby, a farmer and president of the N.C. Poultry Grower’s Association, shares her experiences as a contract farmer.

So far, 2017 has been a whirlwind year for our Contract Agriculture Reform Program. We held two premieres of our documentary film, Under Contract: Farmers and the Fine Print, on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC and at Anthology Film Archives in New York City, and we later held screenings across the country that reached more than 500 people. We’re still riding that wave of initial success to expand our program and our impact.
