April 5, 2021

By Barry Ward, David Marrison, Peggy Hall, Dianne Shoemaker and Julie Strawser – Ohio State University Extension


Ohio State University Extension’s next Farm Office Live webinar will focus on details of the USDA’s Pandemic Assistance for Producers Initiative announced on March 24, 2021. Changes were made in an effort to reach a greater share of farming operations and improve USDA pandemic assistance.

During the webinar, Extension educators will be sharing details about the pandemic initiative and discussing some of the changes made to the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP).  Our Farm Office Team will also provide a legislative update and discuss changes to the Paycheck Protection Program and Employee Retention Credits. They will also be on hand to answer your questions and address any related issues.

Two live sessions will be offered on Wednesday, April 7, from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. and again on Friday, April 9, from 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. A replay will be available on the Farm Office website if you cannot attend the live event. If you are working in the field, Zoom offers a call in option so you do not need to be at a computer to hear the content of the webinar.

Farm Office Live is a webinar series addressing the latest outlook and updates on ag law, farm management, ag economics, farm business analysis and other related issues. It is presented by the faculty and educators within the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences at The Ohio State University.
