Purdue University Launches Farmbill Website

Purdue University has developed a website to give producers and others information about the proposals for the 2007 farm bill. The site has links to areas such as conservation, energy, dairy and commodities. The website has some very useful information that was developed by experts in the Purdue University Department of Agriculture Economics.

Inside Indiana Business has the coverage:

"Our agricultural economics group felt it was useful to pull together as much information as possible to help inform the public, producers and agribusinesses, as well as commodity groups, about the future farm bill," said Mike Boehlje, a Purdue Extension agricultural economics specialist. "The Web site was designed to give viewers a general background about farm policies and alternative proposals."The "2007 Farm Bill Issues and Analysis" Web site was created to provide useful information for the debate and discussion of what the new farm bill should look like, Boehlje said.
