May 26—CHIPPEWA FALLS — U.S. Rep. Derrick Van Orden met with farmers from Chippewa, Eau Claire and Dunn counties for more than two hours Friday, and he had more than 20 pages of notes from the discussion. Those ideas are all going into plans to develop the 2023 Farm Bill.

"These notes go back with me to Washington, and it goes to congressional staff," Van Orden told the dozen farmers on the Agriculture Advisory Board. "We want to get this as right as possible."
