Purdue offers Agricultural Economic information
The spring issue of the Purdue Agricultural Economics Report says that while the past year was difficult for farmers, 1999 appears to be shaping up as a year of only modest improvement.
That's just one of the several articles of interest to people in agriculture that can be found in the free publication. The quarterly Purdue Agricultural Economics Report offers information designed to help farmers and others involved in agriculture make economic decisions.
It is distributed by Purdue Extension and is prepared by the staff of the Department of Agricultural Economics at Purdue.
The most recent issue of The Purdue Agricultural Economics Report also offers articles on these topics:
* Lysine: A case study in international price fixing.
* Critical questions about the farm crisis: Causes and remedies.
* Food System 21: Beef sector outlook.
The report is available on the Internet at http://www.agecon.purdue.edu/extensio/paer0399.pdf. It can be downloaded and printed with Adobe Acrobat Reader freeware. The report also is available at county Extension offices.
