I responded to @NateJaeger indicating that the National Agricultural Law Center was a fantastic resource for people and agribusinesses in nearly every segment of the food and agriculture industry.
In 1987, Congress created the National Agricultural Law Center at the University of Arkansas, School of Law. It is funded by federal monies through the U.S. Department of Agriculture (“USDA”) Agriculture Research Service‘s (“ARS”) National Agricultural Library. If you haven’t visited the National Agricultural Law Center’s website yet then I encourage you to do so. It has a myriad of helpful information in its “reading rooms” on a wide variety of topics including: agriculture leases, agritourism, animal feeding operations (“AFOs”), animal identification, animal welfare, aquaculture, biosecurity, business organizations, checkoff programs, Clean Water Act, cooperatives, Country of Origin Labeling (“COOL”), disaster assistance/crop insurance, estate planning, finance and credit, food safety, international agriculture law and organizations, international agriculture trade, labor, organic labeling, nutrition, packers and stockyards, pesticides, renewable energy, secured transactions, urban agriculture, and water law.
