Growing Michigan Agriculture Conference
There’s no doubt that agriculture plays a vital role in Michigan’s economy. In April 2012, Michigan State University researchers announced that the food and agriculture supply chain shows the industry contributes an estimated $91.4 billion to Michigan’s economy — an increase of nearly 50 percent from 2004 to 2010.
Whether it’s changes in technology, weather, or public expectations, new and evolving issues continue to challenge Michigan farmers. That’s why Michigan State University Extension has brought together farmers and agricultural professionals with interest in various agricultural commodities to learn more about the changes on the horizon. The third annual Growing Michigan Conference will take place March 5, 2014 at the Kellogg Center on the campus of Michigan State University.
This one-day conference is jam-packed with timely information from MSU experts and nationally renowned speakers that will help Michigan producers maximize their farms’ potential.
“We are looking forward to having knowledgeable speakers presenting to such a diverse agricultural audience,” said Dale Rozeboom, MSU professor and Extension specialist. “So often we have great speakers at our individual winter commodity meetings. This conference allows people from all ag sectors to come together in one setting, hear the very best speakers and get the latest information on a variety of important topics.”
