What’s working in the current Farm Bill and what’s needed in the new one?
Those questions being answered by University of Illinois ag policy expert Jonathan Coppess.
Coppess has been receiving input on the issue from farmers across the state and met with the Illinois Farm Bureau Board of Directors last week in Bloomington.
And Coppess says low commodity prices have also been a dominant part of the discussion. The deadline for ushering in a new Farm Bill is September 2018.
