Market Facilitation Program (MFP) Update

Usually when I write a column, I hope it has the latest pertinent information. This is one time I hope for just the opposite. I don’t know what the situation will be when you read this, but at the time I wrote it last week, the government shutdown was in place with no resolution in sight. It doesn’t matter who you think is at fault for causing this, what does matter is it could potentially affect many farmers’ ability to sign up for the MFP.
