Six Successful Farm Bill Listening Sessions
Ohio Corn & Wheat held six listening sessions in January across the state. At the sessions, we encouraged farmers to reflect on and share their first-hand experiences with Farm Bill programs, as well as what sectors of the current Farm Bill are most important to them versus what they would like to see changed. Over one hundred OCW members attended the listening sessions and provided us with their direct feedback.
