MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The University of Minnesota is getting about $103,000 in federal money to help educate farmers and ranchers about the new farm bill.

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack says $3 million is being doled out to extension services nationwide for outreach and education on the new farm legislation.

The money will fund meetings where producers can talk with extension agents and Farm Service Agency staff about their options. The meetings are to begin in late summer.

The federal Agriculture Department also is providing $3 million for officials at the University of Illinois, the University of Missouri and Texas A&M to develop online tools for producers and train experts to educate farmers.
