Webinar series will help Minnesota farmers better understand farm bill

If you’re a farmer and you’re not quite sure what to make of the 2014 farm bill, be sure to check out this three-part webinar series hosted by the Minnesota Soybean Growers Association and co-sponsored by the Minnesota Corn Growers and Minnesota Wheat Growers.

“These are very complex, long-term decisions farmers have to make on the farm programs,” said commodity advisor and broker Al Kluis, who will be participating in each webinar.

The first webinar was held on Thursday, Aug. 14 and covered updating crop base acres and FSA yields. It can be viewed here. The schedule for the rest of the webinars is as follows:

Aug. 26 – Understanding the ARC and PLC Farm Program Decision
Sept. 11 – Farm Program Decision Basics for Land Owners

Participants must pre-register for the webinars, which you can do here. If you are not able to participate in a webinar as it happens, each webinar should be posted here the day after it’s held.

Kluis talked about the webinar series on a recent edition of Corn Update on the Linder Farm Network. Listen to the interview below.
