American Farm Bureau offering farm bill resources online

congressThe American Farm Bureau Federation has produced a series of videos and launched a website at goo.gl/ujjnny to help farmers, landowners and other stakeholders better understand the provisions of the 2014 farm bill.

Featured content includes videos on key commodity program and crop insurance provisions of the farm bill.

“We have distilled down a massive and complex piece of legislation … into several bite-size pieces, with the goal of helping farmers and managers understand how it will affect their farms,” said John Anderson, AFBF deputy chief economist.

“Now that safety net and risk management tools important in crop planning are in place, along with the new program for dairies, the next step is for farmers to be able to move forward with confidence in determining the best options for their individual farms.”

Videos on the site present a farm bill overview and go into detail regarding the Price Loss Coverage and Supplemental Coverage Option, the Agricultural Risk Coverage Program, the Stacked Income Protection Program for Cotton and the Dairy Margin Protection Program.

Links to useful farm bill information from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, land grant universities and other organizations also is available on the site.
