Agents excel in Farm Bill training (1/22/2015)

The Agricultural Act of 2014 (or the Farm Bill) has provided an excellent opportunity for NDSU Extension agents to provide local and highly relevant training to North Dakota producers and landowners, and agents have seized that opportunity. I want to Farm Bill Gathering 2015thank all of the ANR Extension agents who have held training meetings, consulted individually with producers and partnered with county Farm Service Agency (FSA) staff to address farm bill education. The impact of this training and the service that you are providing is immense.

I also want to thank Dwight Aakre, Andy Swenson and Ron Haugen for their leadership, technical expertise, training sessions and support. I have received multiple compliments, pictures of full meeting rooms and even a copy of an agent’s impact report from our state FSA partner regarding Extension’s farm bill educational efforts. I have similar kudos for the information, work and support from the state and county FSA offices. We have exceptional FSA partners in Aaron Krauter and his crew in North Dakota. I know the next big farm bill decision is due February 27. Keep up the great work!
