The North Dakota State Fair will be the site of a USDA Farm Bill Forum.
The forum -- part of a listening tour on the part of USDA -- will be held July 26 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the North Dakota State Fair in Minot.
Last week Secretary of Agriculture Mike Johanns announced the location of the next three U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Farm Bill Forums before a full-capacity audience of more than 400 stakeholders who attended the kick-off of USDA's nationwide farm bill listening tour in Nashville, TN.
"The interest in the next farm bill shown here today has exceeded my expectations," says Johanns in announcing the event. "The thoughtful discourse on the direction of future farm policy is very encouraging and I look forward to the same caliber of discussion at future Farm Bill Forums as we continue our nationwide tour."
