How will sequestration cuts affect you? What will the 2013 harvest bring and why is it important to both grain and livestock farmers? Rising land prices – what’s in store? Is globalization creating strong new competitors for US agriculture? These are just some of the questions that will be explored at Iowa Farm Bureau’s 2013 Economic Summit.
This two-day event moderated by John Phipps is packed with leading experts – like the ever popular Daniel Mitchell from The Cato Institute, Jim Knuth from Farm Credit Services, Ron Beach from Peoples Company, U.S. Secretary of Ag, Tom Vilsack and Iowa State University’s resident climatologist, Elwynn Taylor – just to name a few.
Get an in-depth look at today’s political landscape and how the gridlock in Washington could affect your farming operation. You’ll also learn about the long-term outlook for weather, crops and livestock and hear about new technology that is reshaping agriculture.
At this one-of-a-kind two day event, you’ll gain critical information about the many factors that can impact your farm’s profitability.
