The USDA just announced this on Friday. I just found out about this 20 mins ago. Just in case anyone is going to be in the Grand Rapids area tomorrow:

Agriculture Secretary Vilsack and U.S. Senator Stabenow will host a White House Rural Forum in Grand Rapids to give Michigan farmers an opportunity to discuss their ideas for expanding jobs in agriculture. Local farmers and agriculture leaders will discuss with Secretary Vilsack some of the exciting things happening in areas like biofuels, food processing, and specialty crops.
