MASSILLON, Ohio — The Stark County Farm Service Agency and Ohio State University Extension will hold a meeting to educate farm producers and landowners about the 2014 farm bill programs (Agricultural Risk Coverage and Price Loss Coverage) Jan. 26 at 6 p.m.
The meeting will be held at the R.G. Drage Career Center, in the auditorium, located at 2800 Richville Drive SE, in Massillon.
Producers who participate in the meeting will learn about the ARC and PLC programs, how to get signed up for the new program and how to use the online decision tool. And they’ll learn about whether to reallocate base acres and/or increase farm yields.
This opportunity must have paperwork signed by a landowner and returned to the county office by close of business Feb. 27 in order to benefit the producer.
Both programs offer farmers protection when market forces cause substantial drops in crop prices and/or revenues. Producers will have until March 31 to select which program works best for their businesses.
It is career center policy that if R. G. Drage is closed for any reason, the meeting will be canceled.
STAY INFORMED. SIGN UP!
