Farm bill training opportunities in northern Illinois

Posted by Russel Higgins -

We are nearing the February 27th deadline for the decisions to keep current or update yields and to retain or reallocate base acres. For those who have yet to contact their local FSA office, I would encourage you to do so. Most are setting up appointments to handle the workload.
