Farmers need to plan on attending one of the upcoming Farm Bill Decision meetings being held across the area in the coming two months.  The ‘new’ 2018 Farm Bill will continue with the same 2014 Farm Bill program selections – Agricultural Risk Coverage (ARC) and Price Loss Coverage (PLC) – but farmers are strongly encouraged to attend a public meeting to learn more about this decision.  The ARC-PLC decision must be made by March 16, 2020. Additional topics covered at the meetings will include how to update your PLC yield and deciding if ARC-Individual is a consideration for your farm.  These educational programs are being led by Ohio State University Extension and the United States Department of Agriculture – Farm Service Agency.  Please consider attending one of the following meetings at the corresponding time and location.  No RSVP necessary.  If you have questions, contact either Eric Richer at richer.5@osu.edu, 419-337-9210 or Wendy Kessler at wendy.kessler@usda.gov, 419-335-6061.
