Attend an upcoming Agricultural Policy and Outlook meeting in your county during December 2014 and January 2015. The meetings will feature presentations by AEDE experts on key issues in the agricultural community for 2015, including policy changes, key issues, and market behavior with respect to farm, food and energy resources, and the environment.
As growers consider their options under the new provisions of the 2014 farm bill, several AEDE economists will discuss what the changes mean for farmers during this year’s Farm Science Review at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center near London, Ohio. Matthew Roberts, Carl Zulauf and Barry Ward will participate in the discussion with Jim Mintert from Purdue University.
With the passage of the 2014 farm bill, which authorizes U.S. agricultural and nutrition programs through 2018, major changes are coming to crop safety net programs, said Carl Zulauf, an AEDE agricultural economist. Zulauf will field farm bill questions on Sept. 16, 17 and 18 during the "Question the Authorities" sessions at the 2014 Farm Science Review.
Farm Credit Mid-America, the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation, Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences, and the USDA’s Farm Service Agency have organized a series of free farm bill briefings to help producers understand new crop insurance programs. The events will feature AEDE's Carl Zulauf and Jon Coppess from the University of Illinois.
Each summer one of the most highly anticipated events for AEDE’s faculty and students takes place: the annual meeting of the Agricultural and Applied Economics Association (AAEA). AAEA is the premier professional organization for agricultural and applied economists working in the U.S. At this year’s meeting, which was held from July 27-29 in Minneapolis, nearly 20 AEDE faculty and students presented their research.
Attend one of the dozen agricultural policy and outlook county meetings to be held throughout Ohio in December 2013. The meetings will feature presentations from AEDE experts on policy changes, key issues and market behavior with respect to farm, food and energy resources, and the environment.
Carl Zulauf, an agricultural economist at AEDE, offered a comprehensive update of the 2013 farm bill process in a policy brief, which he presented to policymakers and others Nov. 25 during the college’s kickoff of its 2013-2014 Agricultural Policy and Outlook Conference Series.
As the farm bill progresses through Congress’ legislative process, several major differences exist in the House and Senate versions of the bill, notes AEDE's Carl Zulauf in a recent policy brief that he co-authored with Jonathan Coppess, clinical assistant professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Recent research by Dr. Carl Zulauf, an agricultural economist at AEDE, shows that while on average U.S. farmers are older than the U.S. labor force, the farmers and the labor force are actually aging at a similar pace and in fact, U.S. farmers are aging somewhat more slowly.
The 2013 Farm Science Review will be held from September 17-19, 2013 at Ohio State’s 2,100 acre Molly Caren Agricultural Center near London, Ohio. AEDE faculty, staff and students will have active roles at this year's event.
