Volatile agricultural markets, inflation, recession and a look at local and statewide economic issues are the focus of the 2023 Economic Briefing series, coming to Eastern Montana in mid-March.
Faculty from the Montana State University Department of Agricultural Economics and Economics will collaborate with economists from the University of Montana Bureau of Business and Economic Research to bring an economic briefing with emphasis on agricultural policy issues and forecasts to Sidney in the morning and Miles City in the afternoon on Tuesday, March 14. Breakfast will be provided at the Sidney event, and lunch will be provided at the Miles City event. The cost of the attendance is $30.
“Montana farmers and ranchers have experienced great uncertainty and volatile agricultural markets in recent years,” said George Haynes, professor and Extension specialist in the agricultural economics and economics department at MSU. “The Russian-Ukraine conflict added to economic uncertainty, and relatively dry conditions this year, following severe drought conditions in 2021, took a toll on Montana agriculture.”
The briefing will touch on factors such as interest rates, inflation, global commodity prices and economic growth and uncertainty. Events locations and times are below:
Sidney – Tuesday, March 14, 7–9 a.m. – MSU Richland County Extension, 1499 N. Central Ave.
Miles City – Tuesday, March 14, noon to 2 p.m. – Sleep City Inn & Suites, 1006 S. Haynes Ave.
