AG SEC'Y VILSACK REPORTS ON FARM BILL IMPLEMENTATION
BrownfieldAgNews reports:

While there is still plenty of work to do, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack is pleased with the progress made thus far in getting Farm Bill programs implemented.

"We just recently announced the $6 million that's going to be used to create the models and educational materials for ARC and PLC so producers in the fall will know a little bit better how these programs might work in their particular operations," the Secretary said.

"We're expending crop insurance options, we've announced the Regional Conservation Partnership, and we've made the adjustments to our credit programs that the Farm Bill required, so I think progress has been good."

Already nearly $900 million dollars has been paid out in livestock disaster and forage program claims.
