Agriculture in a Turbulent Economy

Click on the link below to see more information about a Michigan State University (MSU) webcast on Agriculture in a turbulent Economy. MSU Extension (Cheryl Peters) brings this webcast to Presque Isle County because agriculture is very important to our community both as a way of life, a key part of our local economy, and our potential for agricultural development.

This webcast presentation will explore what the credit crisis is and what it means for agriculture. This session will examine the origins of the credit crisis, the international dimensions of the problem, and the implications of the crisis for agriculture in 2009 and beyond.

Representatives from Greenstone Farm Credit Services and USDA-Farm Service Agency will also be present to talk about the changing agricultural economy and what farmers need to be prepared for during the difficult economic times ahead.

When: Thursday February 19th 6:30 – 8:30 PM
Where: Presque Isle County Courthouse in Rogers City
Cost: FREE!


Don't miss this great opportunity to learn more about local agricultural opportunities and how to make it through the current economic crisis.
