2007 Farm Bill: Policy, Options and Consequences

In each farm bill cycle, Farm Foundation and the National Public Policy Education Committee organize a series of activities to increase understanding of policy issues.

The 2007 Farm Bill: Policy Options and Consequences was a series of leaflets on topics ranging from the political/economic environment of the farm bill to analysis of alternatives for wool and mohair policy. The leaflets identify the issue, options to address the issues and potential consequences of those options.

These documents were prepared by a team of economists from Land Grant universities and other organizations.
