Conference speakers include Jackson; Ryan Yonk, undergraduate program director, NDSU Agribusiness and Applied Economics Department; David Ripplinger, Extension bioproducts/bioenergy economist; Bryon Parmon, Extension agricultural finance specialist; Tim Petry, Extension livestock economist; and Frayne Olson, Extension crop economist/marketing specialist.
