Information about the Agricultural Act of 2014 is being provided to producers and otherag-related professionals through a series of nationally broadcast webinars hosted by specialists from UW Extension and six western states.
Called “Ag In Uncertain Times,” Web access to recorded webinars and other materials is at AgInUncertainTimes.FarmManagement.org.
“I would describe this effort as truly innovative and demonstrates an extraordinary extension team effort to address the difficult times faced byagricultural enterprise managers across the United States,” said Roger Coupal, associate professor and head of the Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources.
UW Extension farm/ranch management specialist John Hewlett has been a part of the team since its inception in 2009.
“UW has contributed substantially to the overall efforts of the team,” said Hewlett. “I’ve been involved in offering presentations, emceeing for other presenters, as well as recording, editing and posting all of the more than 100 individual compiled presentations to the Internet. UW also provides the Web servers and tracking for user access.”
