Dairy Education Events

Speaking of the dairy business, producers have a new risk management program available to them through the new farm bill. It’s called the Margin Protection Program and sign up is underway at this time with an enrollment deadline of November 28. So there’s still plenty of time left to get in, and if you would like to know about the program before signing up, Texas A&M AgriLife is providing two opportunities. On Friday, October 24 AgriLife educational programs will be conducted in Hereford and Hartley. There’s no cost to attend either of the sessions and no pre-registration required either.

Water Regulation Proposals Controversial

Many in agriculture are concerned about what is commonly referred to as “The Waters of the U.S. Rule.” This “rule” involves the Clean Water Act, and what many fear is an attempt by EPA to reinterpret the Act in ways that would make even small bodies of water like ditches and ponds subject to regulation and thereby impose new restrictions on common agricultural practices like fertilizer and herbicide application. A public comments period regarding the Clean Water Act proposals is open through Nov. 14.
