Farm Bill Meetings Planned in August, September
Kansas Ag Connection - 08/16/2019

With every new farm bill come new decisions for farmers to make that can have lasting implications for their businesses. The most recent legislation is no exception.

To help agricultural producers determine the best course of action, Kansas State University's Department of Agricultural Economics will host 10 Farm Bill meetings around the state, starting in late August.

The meetings will cover commodity programs, including the economics of the Agriculture Risk Coverage/Price Loss Coverage (ARC/PLC) programs, Supplemental Coverage Option and a new decision tool available for producers.

K-State Research and Extension agricultural economists, extension agents, USDA Farm Service Agency and Natural Resources Conservation Service representatives will provide a big picture perspective, as well as a more local view for each area.
