Northeast Agriculture: The Next 10 Years
Northeast agriculture is a strong and vibrant part of our economy. In September 2012, Farm Credit East brought together three experts, with different perspectives, to discuss Northeast agriculture over the next ten years. Farm Credit East CEO, Bill Lipinski, moderated this discussion between Kathryn Boor, Dean of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Cornell University; Dr. David Kohl, Professor Emeritus, Agricultural Finance and Small Business Management and Entrepreneurship, Virginia Tech; and Chuck Conner, CEO and President, National Council of Farmer Cooperatives.
