The recently passed Farm Bill is like no other in the past particularly for cotton farmers. We are pleased to help the National Cotton Council promote a series of Farm Bill educational meetings around the region next month. There will be a number of these meetings spanning more than a week all across the Southeast (as well as the rest of the Belt) beginning March. The Dates, Times and Locations are below. The attached document has all of the meetings across the country.
There are some important decisions that producers need to make this year that will determine how they manage their farms for the life of this farm bill. It is vitally important that gins encourage their producers to attend one or more of these educational meetings.
