The meeting kicks off with lunch, followed by a short program by Dr. Jim Mintert and an update on Indiana Farm Bureau’s and the American Farm Bureau Federation’s efforts working toward the 2018 Farm Bill. The rest of the session will be spent in discussion and Q&A to gain feedback from farmers on what is and is not working for them in the current farm bill.
This meeting is open to the public and you can register at the door.
More information regarding the farm bill can be found here. The AFBF Farm Bill Working Group has examined issues, information gaps and analysis needed to engage members in the development of a new farm bill and has provided a series of informational papers to consider.

2008 Dodge Charger purchased with help from CCAA in 2012
In 2012, the Carroll County Agriculture Association raised (and matched) funds to purchase a car for the Carroll County Reserve Deputies. Reserve Deputies are all-volunteer deputies who assist the Carroll County Sheriff department in local law enforcement. In 2008, CCAA and its members raised donated $12,250.
The Reserve Deputy program is seeking a replacement vehicle for the 2008 car purchased with that project. As supporters of our local law enforcement officers, CCAA is again raising (and matching) funds for a car.
CCAA will match all donations made through CCAA in support of this project, up to $5,000.
