Technical Abstract: Farming and Ranching for the Bottom Line is an annual conference that brings together researchers and practitioners to share knowledge to a broader audience. For 2020, talks will focus on sharing information with northern Great Plains agricultural producers on the economics, ecology and social factors related to their operations. Dr. Mark Liebig will review outcomes from 2019 growing season and discuss lessons learned that can be useful for future years. Dr. Andrea Clemensen will discuss how archival data may provide links between land management and food quality; and Dr. David Toledo will discuss landowner motivations for implementing management changes on their land. These three talks by USDA-ARS NGPRL scientists will be complemented by talks from other USDA-ARS, academic, agency, and private partners. Collectively, presentations will highlight current research and inform producers of the most up-to-date research that could impact the bottom line in their farming and ranching operations.
