Farm Bill Summit, OSU
June 27-28, 2019
Presentations by the nation’s top ag policy professionals on the 3 largest agricultural titles in the 2018 Farm Bill
The 2018 Farm Bill, passed by Congress and signed by President Trump, now awaits implementation by United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), agencies like the Farm Service Agency, Natural Resources Conservation Services, Risk Management Agency and many others. The passage of the farm bill authorizes funding for many of the federal programs producers utilize throughout the growing season. This bill is considered to be mostly evolutionary not revolutionary, but there are still changes that will be important to producers and agribusinesses.
The Ohio State University, the Purdue Center for Commercial Agriculture, the University of Kentucky and Farm Credit Mid-America jointly sponsored a Farm Bill Summit on Thursday, April 11, 2019 at Versailles High School. WATCH THE RECORDED VIDEO (below) NOW! The program featured presentations by three of the nation’s top ag policy professionals: Keith Coble from Mississippi State; Jonathan Coppess from the University of Illinois; and Patrick Westhoff from the University of Missouri’s Food and Agricultural Policy Research Institute.
The three keynote speakers presented on the three largest agricultural titles in terms of spending within the farm bill:
Crop Insurance (Title 11)
Conservation (Title 2)
Crop Commodity Program Provisions (Title 1)
Recorded versions of each speaker’s presentation plus the Q&A panel discussion at the end of the night is posted on our YouTube channel for viewing at your own leisure.
