Publication Series

The Center for Ag Profitability's publication series carries on the work started in March 2021 with our Farm and Ranch Management (FARM) publication series by offering trusted, research-based information for producers and other agribusiness professionals of all levels.

Farm management issues covered include finances, the ag economy, marketing, ag policy, farm programs and much more. The series typically published 2-3 times per week, with each article usually accompanied by a podcast that summarizes and expands upon the written piece.
