NCC farm bill meetings in California and Arizona March 17-20

March 17th - 20th, 2014 • Dos Palos, CA

Past Event:

 The National Cotton Council (NCC) has scheduled 49 education meetings in 15 Cotton Belt states, including six in California and Arizona, to provide members with a greater understanding of The Agricultural Act of 2014 (the new 2014 farm law).

NCC President and Chief Executive Officer Mark Lange said, “This new five-year comprehensive farm law includes fundamental changes in cotton’s safety net, a greater reliance on crop insurance products, and will be implemented over the 2014 and 2015 crops.”

Lange added, “As with previous farm laws, some of this legislation’s provisions are complex, and the Council wants to provide our members with the insight necessary for them to plan accordingly. All producers, cotton industry firms, and agribusinesses are encouraged to attend any of these important meetings.”

The dates and locations for the California meetings include: March 17 at 9 a.m. in Dos Palos at the D.E.S. Hall, 1357 Elgin Ave. (Hwy 33); March 17 at 2:00 in Coalinga at Harris Ranch (Garden Ballroom), Interstate 5 and Highway 198; and March 18 at 9 a.m. in Bakersfield at the Kern Ag Pavillion, 3300 East Belle Terrace.
