MU Extension & USDA Farm Service Agency Farm Bill Meeting

The 2014 Farm Bill contains several new provisions that enable farmers and landowners to make decisions regarding their involvement in federal farm programs.  Landowners will have the opportunity to reallocate base acres on individual farms as well as update yield information that is used to determine some farm program payments.  Additionally, farmers will have the opportunity to elect to participate in the new commodity programs—Price Loss Coverage and Agriculture Risk Coverage.  To provide information on the new farm bill and assist landowners and farmers in making program decisions by utilizing decision tools, University of Missouri Extension and USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) will host multiple educational meetings:
