The Senate Agriculture Committee will hold its first in a series of field hearings to discuss the 2018 Farm Bill on February 23, 2017, at the McCain Auditorium at Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas. The meeting will serve as a forum to gain insights from individuals working in agriculture regarding topics to address in upcoming negotiations for the new legislation. The House Agriculture Committee will hold similar field hearings, but dates for those discussions have not yet been announced. In the meantime, the House Agriculture Committee will meet February 15, for a hearing examining economic factors that could inform the development to the Farm Bill.
