Cornell University's annual Agribusiness Economic Outlook Conference will be targeting a red hot topic on Tuesday, Dec. 18. It kicks off at 10 a.m. at Kennedy Hall of the Ithaca campus.
Craig Regelbrugge, senior director of government relations for the American Nursery and Landscape Association leads off with an update on the latest action in the nation's capitol. He'll be followed by Tom Maloney, Extension Ag economist at Cornell with a look at immigration's impact on New York agriculture.
Afternoon sessions will address the outlooks for feed grains, dairy markets and specialty crops. And the results of a perishable product distribution study will be presented.
Popularity of the conference makes pre-registration important. The pre-registration fee is $65, if postmarked by December 3; $80 if postmarked after December 3 or if registering on-site.
Parking permits are available for $5 each. For further information or to obtain a preregistration form, click on aem.cornell.edu/outreach/conferences/economic_outlook.htm, or contact Linda Putnam at 607-255-8429.
