Despite the passage of the Farm Bill, there is still many in the agricultural community who have not yet discovered what all is or is not included.
Adam Sharp, vice president for public policy of the Ohio Farm Bureau on Thursday morning provided some details of the Agricultural Act of 2014, the farm bill's official title. He was the featured speaker at the March Ag Breakfast Forum held at the Agricultural Incubator Foundation east of Haskins.
Sharp first made sure those in attendance were aware of many of the various cuts in payments to growers tin the latest bill. He also noted that any payments past and future made to the farmers through the act is not just for them and their families.
"Farmers are paid for the public good - To keep things stable," Sharp said.
He said the food chain needs stability and security at every juncture. He also noted the need to protect the waterways, the air and the soil, "again for the public good."
He added that one in seven jobs in Ohio is linked to the food chain. Despite that fact, he said the amount of money for commodities (such as the grain areas) is "just a rounding error when it comes to the entire farm bill."
