SDFU holds meeting on 2014 Farm Bill

South Dakota Farmers Union is hosting a Farm Bill meeting 2 p.m. today in partnership with the Beadle County Farm Service Agency at the Huron Event Center.

The meeting will provide farmers with information to assist them in making decisions on the two commodity programs — Price Loss Coverage and Agricultural Risk Coverage.

Under the 2014 Farm Bill, producers will have a one-time election for enrolling in the ARC or PLC programs. Landowners will have the opportunity to update their base allocation and yields based on the farms planting history and actual production.

There will also be information about crop insurance policies and provisions in the 2014 Farm Bill.
