Virginia Farm Bureau Presents Farm Bill Information Sessions Across the State


Farmers and farm landowners are cordially invited to attend the 2014 Farm Bill Information Sessions.
The Agricultural Act of 2014 authorized several new programs and modified many other programs that will impact farms across Virginia.
Plan to attend a 2014 Farm Bill Information Session, hosted by the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation, and hear the latest news about farm program changes affecting farm safety net, marketing, conservation, risk management and rural development provisions.
Whether your interests include row or specialty crops, cow/calf or dairy, conventional or organic, United States Department of Agriculture staff will present beneficial information for your farming operation.
Each 2 – 2 ½ hour session will conclude with an opportunity to meet USDA staff for additional information.
