Pat Westhoff provided the participants in the Oct. 5 University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture’s, Food and Agribusiness Webinar a powerful “Outlook Discussion on Farm Bill, Policy, Tax Reform, Trade and Market Outlook.”
Westhoff is director of Missouri FAPRI — Food and Agricultural Policy Research Institute at the University of Missouri — and is a professor in the department of agricultural and applied economics. The mission of FAPRI is to provide objective analysis of markets and policies.
Westhoff and the FAPRI group are part of a very small elite set of analysts who command the respect of members of Congress and their staffs and anyone focused on commodity markets, economic outlook and agricultural policies.
Anyone interested in the ongoing farm bill discussion, the broader area of agricultural policy, tax reform and trade, macro drivers and commodity market outlook will find Westhoff’s presentation and discussion insightful.
