MORRILTON The Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service has scheduled a conference in Conway to discuss the federal farm bill.
Congress recently extended the 2008 farm bill and the conference scheduled for Jan. 30 is to include a discussion on the laws and regulations associated with the extension and the impact it could have on purchasing crop insurance.
The extension service says the information will be presented by National Agricultural Law Center Director Harrison Pittman and by attorney Grant Ballard. Ballard is a research consultant with the law center.
The meeting will be from 10 a.m. until noon at the Conway County Fair Grounds in Morrilton.
