Come learn about the changing farm business from a panel of local experts at the Inland Northwest Ag Forum on Thursday, October 12 at 7 p.m. at The Center at Colfax Library. This free event is open to farmers, those in the farm industry and local residents who want to learn more about our economy and way of life.

Topics will center upon the rapidly changing business of farming with panelists exploring the evolution and future of farm equipment, impacts and changes to crop protection and fertilizer industries, grain storage, and product marketing both domestically and worldwide. There will be time for questions and panelists will remain afterward for further discussion.

Presenters and panelists include Keith Becker and Jay Rubin from Pacific Northwest Farmers’ Cooperative; Dennis Solbrack of Pape’ Machinery; Fred Morscheck from the McGregor Company and Randy Suess, former chair of the US Wheat Associates.

Besides the forum, participants can browse the photo exhibit by Dennis Witmer titled The Grain Elevators of Whitman County. Witmer will be on hand to answer questions and images will be for sale during the event with a portion of the proceeds benefiting The Center.
