Seminar offers education about new Farm Bill

March 14, 2014

Mike Wagner drove to Starkville from 140 miles away to learn about the new Farm Bill the U.S. Congress passed in February.

Wagner grows rice, soybeans, wheat and corn on his farm in Sumner, and one of the Farm Bill’s many purposes is to protect farmers like him from fluctuations in crop yields and market prices. Much has changed with the new Farm Bill, particularly in commodity programs and crop insurance options. Wagner said he had studied the bill thoroughly through mass media, but he still felt there was a lot to learn. And while Mississippi State University offered a seminar closer to where he lived, it did not fit his schedule as well as one in Starkville on Thursday did.
