USDA Under Secretary Visits ND

Posted: Updated:
        After 5 years of hard work, and year long extensions a 2014 Farm Bill is finally in place.
    Work is now being done to implement the bill. 

    Today Michael Scuse, the USDA Under Secretary for Farm and Foreign Agricultural Services is in Bismarck listening to what our producers have to say. 
    Scuse is responsible for implementing many of the agriculture programs that are important to North Dakota farmers and ranchers. 
    Such as finalizing safety net programs and the supplemental coverage option.
    Both Senator John Hoeven and Scuse say understanding these programs is critical because producers have decisions to make.


(Sen. John Hoeven / ND (R)"He is the man implementing the farm bill and we want him to hear directly from our producers on these important issues on the commodity title, on crop insurance, on the conservation requirements and we want him to take their input on implementing this farm bill, so we can get the best possible farm bill for our farmers and ranchers.

(Michael Scuse / USDA) The next programs we will be rolling out are the ARC and PLC programs. These programs are going to be critical. Our producers are going to have to do an awful lot of looking at each one of these programs, studying these programs. Looking at the decision programs that will be available to them to make their decisions. Because once a decision is made, they are locked in for 5 years.">>


    Scuse says the new dairy program will be released September 2.
    He says programs for fall seeded crops will be available in November. 
    The Farm Bill was signed into law on February 7th, 2014.
