2014 Farm Bill Questions
Analysis of key decisions farmers and landowners need to make regarding their participation in programs available under the 2014 Farm Bill. Roman Keeney, Jim Mintert & Michael Langemeier discuss base acreage reallocation, ARC-County, PLC and ARC-Individual programs. Includes a demonstration of spreadsheet tool that compares expected returns from both ARC-County and PLC programs.
This University of Illinois spreadsheet calculates Agricultural Risk Coverage for County Coverage (ARC-CO), Agricultural Risk Coverage for Individual Coverage (ARC-IC), and Price Loss Coverage (PLC) payments. County yields and market year average (MYA) prices are brought in for a user-specified state-county-crop combination. Users then can change 2018 through 2020 county yields and prices to see ARC-CO, ARC-IC, and PLC payments under those yields and prices.READ MORE
