About

Purdue University has scheduled a couple of February workshops related to the upcoming Farm Bill decisions for producers throughout Indiana. The Farm Bill 2020 Decision Making workshops will take place in Vincennes, Indiana on February 5th and Huntington, Indiana on February 12th. At each workshop, Indiana Farm Bureau will provide a complimentary lunch for attendees that pre-register.

“During the Farm Bill workshops, farmers and landowners can work through examples to help them make the best decisions for their individual circumstances ahead of the USDA’s March 15 program sign-up deadline,” said James Mintert, director of the Center for Commercial Agriculture and Purdue professor of agricultural economics. Mintert is a presenter at the Farm Bill workshops along with Purdue’s Michael Langemeier and Kaitlin Meyers from the Indiana Farm Service Agency. During lunch, Megan Ritter from Indiana Farm Bureau will provide a presentation entitled Farm Bureau Health Benefit Plan.

Farm Bill workshops begin at 10:30 a.m. EST, with the following dates and locations.

Wednesday, Feb. 5: Vincennes Agricultural Center, 4207 N. Purdue Road, Vincennes.

Wednesday, Feb. 12: Huntington County Fairgrounds, First Merchants Heritage Hall, 631 E. Taylor St., Huntington.
