University of Missouri Extension and the Daviess County Farm Service Agency are hosting a Farm Bill Meeting on Wednesday, January 28, 2015, from 1-4 pm at the Daviess County Farm Service Agency located in Gallatin, MO.  The meeting is free and open to the public. 

Meeting attendees will learn about Farm Service Agency (FSA) Farm Bill programs including Agricultural Risk Coverage (ARC) and Price Loss Coverage (PLC).

Kirby Payne, Farm Service Agency County Executive Director (CED), will present ARC/PLC policy and procedure, and Bob Kelly, MU Extension Agriculture Business Specialist, will demonstrate the online decision-making tools that are available to producers to help make important enrollment decisions regarding the ARC and PLC programs. Learning more about these programs is extremely important for producers who must make a one-time decision about base and yield updates as well as ARC or PLC election and enrollment decisions.

For more information about the meeting, please contact CED Kirby Payne at 660-663-3703. Because space is limited, attendees are asked to register by contacting the Daviess County Farm Service Agency at 660-663-3703.
