Web Site of the Month - Ag Business and Economics - USU

Dr. Allen Young
USU Extension Dairy Specialist

The site this month is the Ag Business and Economics site for Utah State University Extension. This site is still a work in progress, but shows great potential in the areas of agribusiness and economics. The URL is:

http://www.extension.usu.edu/coop/ag/agbus/

This site is divided into costs, returns and finance, prices and markets, community development, public lands and natural resources, small business management, risk management, 2002 farm bill, publications, and links to other sites. There is an extensive collection of budgets developed over the years for the areas of crops, livestock and specialty enterprises. The records and record-keeping section is interesting if you use Quicken, and will change in the coming year to include additional areas I think you will be surprised at the amount of information already at this site and I suggest checking back regularly as it is developed further. ©
