2010 Montana State University Agriculture Appreciation weekend conference is November 5-6

Bill Brewster

Montana State University’s (MSU) annual Agriculture Appreciation Weekend Conference is scheduled for Nov. 5 and 6 with a jam-packed agenda which brings the state’s ag leadership and producers to the Bozeman campus to showcase Montana’s number-one industry.

The conference, hosted by MSU Extension and the Department of Agricultural Economics and Economics (DAEE), addresses “Energy and Agriculture in Montana.”

On Saturday, Nov. 6, the focus shifts to the MSU College of Agriculture’s dedication of the new Animal Bioscience Complex, the Montana State University football game with Weber State, and an AGR and College of Ag “Alumni and Friends Reception” at the new multi-million dollar teaching and research facility on the campus.

The conference begins on Friday, Nov. 5, with a roster of expert speakers discussing agricultural policy, livestock, grain and energy markets. It begins at 9 a.m. in the Procrastinator Theater in the MSU Student Union Building.

Dr. Douglas Steele, the MSU vice provost and Extension Service Director, is scheduled to open the program.

“As the Extension Service, we serve as the information filter that makes sure the end-users get the information that is relevant,” Steele said. “We are trying to meet their individual issues and needs in a way that computer search engines can’t accomplish.”

Through the DAEE, Steele said Extension is working to provide in-depth information for the ag community at the conference.

“Our responsibility is to help people with problem solving,” he said. “There is not one single answer, so we give them multiple strategies so they can make decisions that fit their applications. To do that, we try to help them narrow down the scope and make the [decision] that is most relevant to them.”

Steele said there is a lot of momentum for the conference this year. With the dedication of the Animal Bioscience Complex, Montana’s ag industry is seeing this fundraising project come to an exciting completion. The funds for the Complex came from a combination of government channels and donations from individual producers and others in the Montana livestock industry.

“Montana producers saw the value not only for their children but also for the state ag industry years to come,” Steele said.
