Representatives of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Farm Service Agency also will discuss commodity program procedures at the half-day meetings.

   Ford County has been chosen as one of the locations to host a farm bill meeting. Slated to take place January 29 at the Maguouirk Conference Center, 4100 W Comanche, in Dodge City.
