UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
Agricultural Economics applies the principles of economics to the production of crops, livestock and other agricultural areas. It focuses on creating a business mindset, while providing students with hands on and real world experiences. Students gain valuable management skills that they can apply to a variety of areas within the agricultural industry.
The Department of Agricultural Economics is the academic home of three majors:
The Ag Economics Quiz Bowl team is hosting a breakfast fundraiser at Moose Lodge in River Falls this Sunday, April 26. This event is to help the team raise money for travel to the National Conference in San Francisco this summer. See event details and RSVP on Facebook.
The Agribusiness Quiz Bowl team competed in the Southern Ag Economics Association (SAEA) quiz bowl competition in early February. This summer they plan to attend the Agricultural and Applied Economics Association (AAEA) national competition.
The department welcomes Simon Jette-Nantel, extension specialist in farm management and finances, to Ag Economics this spring 2015.
