Farmers around Ohio will soon be faced with several choices concerning the national safety net for agriculture.
To help farmers get fully informed about coming ag commodity program changes due to the 2014 Farm Bill, the Ohio Farmers Union along with several sponsors will hold a Farm Bill Implementation Forum on Friday at Bowling Green State University.
"Because this new law brings change - and a new set of issues for farmers to consider - the Ohio Farmers Union is bringing together some of the nation's foremost experts on ag commodity programs to explain the new law," Joe Logan, president of OFU said.
Under the new law, farmers will take one of two paths regarding the ag safety net. One option is Price Loss Coverage, or PLC, a price-based assistance program. The other is Agricultural Risk Coverage, or ARC, a farm revenue-based program. The choice farmers make around the country will stick with them for the next five years.
