LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The Nebraska Farm Bureau Federation has prepared a list to help Nebraska farmers navigate changes wrought by the recently passed farm bill in Washington.
The list is titled the "Top 10 Things to Know About the 2014 Farm Bill."
Farm Bureau President Steve Nelson says the list "provides a baseline of information to help (farmers) get started."
The bureau says a critical component of the new bill for Nebraska farmers and ranchers is the retroactive extension of numerous livestock disaster programs. Livestock disaster signup begins April 15.
The bureau has developed a 2014 Farm Bill Breakdown web offering that includes a way to submit farm bill questions. The website address is www.nefb.org .
