State Rep. Darren Bailey (R-Xenia) joins the Illinois Farm Bureau in thanking the farmers of Illinois who continue to grow crops and raise livestock to keep the food supply stable for our state and country. The University of Illinois is offering webinars in March to explore the impact of the coronavirus and agriculture.

“When you get a chance, send the farmers you know a thank you for continuing to work to keep our food supply available,” said Rep. Bailey. “If you are a farmer and would like to learn more about what might be on the horizon for the agriculture industry, you should register for up-coming online webinars called "farmdoc daily live: Coronavirus and Ag.”

The coronavirus is causing unprecedented disruption in the US and global economies. Agriculture has already and will continue to be impacted. The farmdoc team is offering a series of “live” webinar events to discuss the impact the coronavirus crisis on Corn Belt agriculture. The webinars are expected to be 30-minutes long but can be extended if necessary. Each webinar will begin with brief presentations, with the bulk of the time available to answer questions from attendees. Register for the webinar series here:
