County agricultural producers who want to take maximum advantage of changes in the current farm bill should plan to attend the Thursday, November 21 meeting hosted by the Payne County Extension Office in cooperation with USDA Farm Service Agency.
Speakers will include Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service experts Trent Milacek, Oklahoma State University Cooperative Extension area agricultural economist headquartered in Enid, and Amy Hagerman, assistant professor of agricultural and food policy with OSU’s Division of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources.
Farmers and ranchers have the opportunity to elect to either Agricultural Risk Coverage County Option or Price Loss Coverage for the 2019 to 2023 crop years. However, producers need to be aware they have the option of changing their election in the last three years.
There is no cost to attend. This meeting will take place at the Payne County Expo Center. A meal sponsored by the Stillwater Chamber of Commerce Agribusiness Committee will be provided during the event.
Please RSVP no later than Tuesday, November 19. To RSVP, contact the Payne County Extension Office at 405-747-8320 or go to https://okla.st/2Q4cMAK.
