Agriculture and Economics have both been passions of mine since my years as an undergrad at Southwest Minnesota State University. I continued this passion at South Dakota State University while pursuing a Graduates degree in Economics. This, along with my production agriculture background, gives me a unique position look at trends in Agriculture with an objective eye, good, bad or in between. I will be using this page for my new blog “A Call to Farms” to highlight some of the problems we are seeing in agriculture, the causes, and what could be done to turn it around. I will also use this platform to educate consumers about agriculture to help them make more informed decisions when it comes to food purchases. Stay tuned.
