The debate surrounding the 2012 Farm Bill has been building as the current 2008 Farm Bill is set to expire. The primary message out of Washington has been that budget cuts will come, including to the USDA and the Farm Bill. This presentation will present some of the main proposals that have been floated so far and offer insights on what to expect in terms of where the expected cuts will come. Of course, all bets are off as to what the politicians will finally decide.
