This Friday, January 17, is the Early Bird deadline for Montana’s Next Generation Conference!  Montana’s Next Generation Conference is coming up quickly, Friday, January 31 and Saturday, February 1, in Shelby.  All the details are available online at 
Friday, January 31, will kick off at 11 a.m. at the Coyote Club in Shelby with our keynote speaker,   Dan is an ag economist and author who served as a consultant to the U.S. Grains Council on a trade mission to China.  He was a top executive of one of the nation’s top four firms on market outlooks and price risk management, and he also defended the beef industry on national TV against Oprah Winfry.  He was recently named the “Ag Communicator of the Year” and will bring a great perspective and knowledge to the conference.  Friday he’ll be covering, “The Big Picture in Ag,” “Financial Management Skills and Business Planning,” and “Farming is a Blessing and not a Punishment.”  He’ll have something for everyone, and both farmers and ranchers should plan to attend the Friday session.  We’ll cap the evening off with a delicious roast beef dinner and some time for networking.
