The 2018 Texas Ag Forum, "Anticipating the 2018 Farm Bill," was held in Austin, Texas, January 29. Many commodity association officers and agricultural agency directors attended the annual event to hear the latest on the rural economy, the upcoming farm bill and the outlook for the 2018 season.
The Texas Ag Forum is an association of agricultural leaders and representatives from across the Texas food and fiber system. Founded over 30 years ago, it provides a forum for open and public discussion of the problems and emerging issues in agriculture.
