Only two more meetings remain for those with a stake in the 2014 farm bill.

Previous meetings covered other agencies, like Rural Economic Development or the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service.

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said in a video statement Wednesday, "It's going to be a very busy year at USDA. We now have this added responsibility of implementing a 932-page farm bill."

The latest farm bill policy news came Monday, March 10, with the announcement of expanded resources for small and mid-size farmers.
