LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - Anyone wanting an overview of the new federal farm bill and its importance to Wyoming can find it in a new bulletin from University of Wyoming Extension.
The bulletin describes the origins of America’s farm and food programs, explains how they affect agricultural producers and food consumers and highlights the most important policy changes in the 2014 farm bill.
The article is authored by Nicole Ballenger, a professor in the UW Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics.
Ballenger’s report explores the roles of the farm bill programs in Wyoming, including rates of participation in food assistance and nutrition, farm support and conservation programs and compares them with national average participation rates.
The bulletin can be accessed on the UW website.
