CHAMPAIGN -- Farmers around the county came together to talk about problems they face every day. It's part of a "Tool-shed Meeting" put on by the Champaign County Farm Bureau.

They stopped at three locations Wednesday, including Parkland College. People could ask questions and find out more about state and federal issues.

Some of the biggest concerns addressed the National Farm Bill. It deals with the lingering effects of last year's harvest. They also discussed renewable fuels and the state budget's impact on agriculture.
