The current Farm Bill might not officially expire for a couple of years, but the discussion for the next one has already started.
Illinois commodity and farm organizations plan to work together and provide opportunities in November for you to start providing input on the next federal Farm Bill.
One of three Farm Bill sessions will be held at the DeKalb County Farm Bureau on Tuesday, Nov. 29 at 9:30 a.m. The session is being sponsored by state beef, pork, corn and soybean associations and Farm Bureau.
Rita Frazier, with Illinois Farm Bureau, will moderate the Nov. 29 session. There will be time for questions and gathering member input. A Farm Bill panel will include comments from Jonathan Coppess, University of Illinois, and Susan Donavan, The Nature Conservancy.
After the session, lunch will be provided.
