Webinar focus on next farm bill, ongoing trade issues – April 12

Corbus U.S. Capitol
Dr. Patrick Westhoff, FAPRI director, will discuss the challenges of writing the next farm bill.

Dr. Patrick Westhoff, director of the Food and Agricultural Policy Research Institute (FAPRI) at the University of Missouri–Columbia and a professor in the MU Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics, will discuss challenges of writing the next farm bill and ongoing trade issues during the next University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture webinar set for April 12, 10 a.m. Central Time.

Writing a farm bill is a challenging activity given budget constraints, the economic importance to the U.S. agricultural sector and the American public, varying stakeholder interests and the importance to global economic and trade relationships.

Westhoff will discuss the economic, trade and biofuels considerations, crop and livestock market outlook, and other issues that congressional leadership and members are considering as they pen the next farm bill.

He provides perspective into the monumental task of writing and passing the next farm bill and ongoing trade issues and considerations.
