Siouxland farmers can learn more about the 2012 Farm Bill at a workshop next week. The Center for Rural Affairs is co-hosting a session in Emmetsburg, Iowa next Thursday, February 2nd at the Wild Rose Casino. Officials will discuss what's at stake and how farmers can have input on the legislation before Congress.
The assistant director of rural policy at the center will outline details of the farm bill. Traci Bruckner says the measure covers everything from value-added agriculture to conservation to things that happen on rural main streets supporting small businesses.
