Nebraska Farm Bureau offers help with Farm Bill decision-making PDF Print E-mail

Nebraska farmers looking for assistance in evaluating how their operations might fair under different options offered through the 2014 Farm Bill can get direct one-on-one assistance, thanks to a new service offered by the Nebraska Farm Bureau Federation (NFBF).
The service gives farmers and landowners an opportunity to evaluate farm bill program options for their operations by having a University of Nebraska-trained individual assist them in working through online farm bill tools, said Steve Nelson, Nebraska Farm Bureau president.
“Changes in the 2014 Farm Bill have left farmers and landowners with lots to consider as they begin making farm bill program sign-up decisions over the next several months. Landowners will consider base and yield reallocations and farmers will choose between three new farm programs,” said Nelson.
According to Nelson, the purpose of the service isn’t to tell individuals what they should do when it comes to farm programs, but rather to make sure they have good information from which to make those decisions.
Farm Bureau members can access the farm bill service for a fee of $50. Non-Farm Bureau members are eligible for the service at a fee of $100, which includes a one-year membership to the Nebraska Farm Bureau Federation.
Farmers and ranchers interested in this service should contact Nebraska Farm Bureau Director of National Affairs Jordan Dux at 402-450-3555 or via email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
