Linnea Kooistra, owner if Kooistra Farms in Woodstock visits with some of her cows Thursday, April 10, 2014. Among the changes in the Farm Bill passed earlier this year is a new insurance program for dairy farmers, which Kooistra said will help small dairy farmers stay in McHenry County. The bill also repeals direct payments to farmers while strengthening crop insurance.
