Farm Bill Update: Well, the deadline for all farm bill decisions, including yield update, base acre allocation and ARC vs PLC, has been extended to March 31. If you’re a landowner or tenant, you have until then to make all your decisions. To me, a big decision you can make is the base acre allocation  decision and that’s why I chose to get involved with helping farmers and landowners. The program decision is based on  your thought on prices, your view of how you utilize the farm bill for risk management in your operation, and a number of  other thoughts. I’ve enjoyed working with many farmers and landowners through this process. Many of you have made partial decisions with FSA already and because of that, I’m getting  a variety of paperwork coming to me in the office. At this point,if you do plan on scheduling a time to work with me, please ask your local FSA office for their “eraser sheet”, because it’s more difficult for me  to complete your analysis for you without  it. Also, please call the Extension Office at (402) 762-3644 to schedule an appointment instead of contacting me directly.
