Farm Bill Training

Posted: Updated:

Farmers and ranchers will have some decisions to make about how they want to interact with the new federal farm bill.

That's the message Dwight Aakre of the NDSU Extension Service brought to local producers this morning.

Aakre has been out of his Fargo office quite a bit lately, holding informational seminars to explain the just-enacted farm bill.

He says farmers and ranchers will be having to decide what area of the farm bill they want to use to provide them with financial protection.

The choice is between a revenue product called ARC and a price support product called PLC.

The good news is that the decision won't have to be made immediately.

(Dwight Aakre, NDSU Extension Farm Management Specialist) "This isn't going to be done in a hurry. We do have time. Probably the actual enrollment in the ARC versus PLC won't take place until fall, or at least late summer. So there is time to learn the ins and outs."

Aakre says trying to decide what part of the farm program is best will be a difficult process and will have to be based on many things that happen between now and the fall regarding the writing of rules for the farm bill.
