Ag Outlook 2019

Two Sessions: Maple Creek & Fox Valley

Weather and supplies have caused unprecedented market volatility, making predicting markets and preparing for the next growing season a tough job, and that’s where we can help. Cypress Credit Union’s program is designed to provide participants with a concise evaluation of current market conditions, expected trends in crop and livestock income potential, and management implications.

The Cypress Credit Union’s Agricultural Outlook 2019 is committed to sharing the latest economic research and information to help farmers and ranchers make informed business decisions.

Join our economist as he gives an outlook of agricultural markets for the coming year. Participants will get to network with other local producers and stakeholders.
