Farmers Welcome One-Month Extensionfor 'Actively Engaged' Reporting

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack’s announcement of a one-time, 30-day extension for the June 1 deadline for recording farm organization structures related to “Actively Engaged in Farming” determinations was well received by farmers and ranchers across the country.

“Just two weeks ago, Farm Bureau and other farm groups communicated to Agriculture Secretary Vilsack that our farmers needed more time to examine the business structures of their farms to ensure they could retain eligibility for farm programs. I am pleased to see that Secretary Vilsack granted an extension of 30 days,” said American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall.
