Farm bill workshops planned

California producers are invited to a pair of workshops to get answers to their questions on changes brought about by the farm bill. Anita Brown is the Public Affairs Director for the Natural Resources Conservation Service in California, just one the four USDA agencies involved in the workshops. The other three agencies are the Farm Service Agency, Risk Management Agency, and Rural Development. The CDFA will be on hand to discuss Specialty Crop Block Grants as well.
