Figuring out the Farm Bill

#askACES Believe it or not, the Farm Bill impacts many areas of our lives, regardless of our connection to the farm. With sections including commodity programs, disaster assistance, conservation programs, and nutrition programs, the Farm Bill’s reach extends to many unexpected spaces. With scheduled 2018 expiration, the debate is heating up. Join us for a Twitter chat on Sept. 27 from noon to 1 p.m. CT with ACES experts from the Department of Agricultural and Consumer Economics and the Gardner Agriculture Policy Program. Jonathan Coppess, clinical assistant professor, and Gary Schnitkey, professor, will share what you need to know about how the Farm Bill impacts your life.

See the chat on Twitter or on our #askACES page where you can hear and download past podcasts too!
