Farm Bill education meeting @ Kimball
Oct 24 @ 8:30 am – 11:30 am

Nebraska Extension will host a Farm Bill education meeting Oct. 24 at the Kimball County 4-H building from 8:30-11:30 a.m. This meeting is free and open to the public. Registration is requested to ensure adequate handouts for participants. To register please call the Kimball County Extension Office 308-235-3122.

The 2018 Farm Bill, signed into law last December, reauthorized the existing Agriculture Risk Coverage (ARC) and Price Loss Coverage (PLC) safety net programs that were in the 2014 Farm Bill. However, producers will need to make new program enrollment decisions over the coming months.

While the ARC and PLC programs under the new farm bill remain very similar to the previous farm bill, a few program changes coupled with changes in market conditions and outlook could significantly impact producer decisions.
