How to feed a more populous, prosperous world

The 2016 Montana Farm Bureau Annual Convention will be November 13-16 at the Double Tree and Northern Hotels in Billings, Montana. The theme “Connecting at the Trailhead” captures the coming together of farmers and ranchers to work toward the common goal of promoting agriculture, dealing with regulations and providing food for a hungry world. Here's a preview of some convention highlights:

Greg Page, Cargill’s former chief executive officer, is versed in success. As the head of Cargill, Page used his global experience, leadership skills and positive, realistic outlook to help drive Cargill’s growth, even as the company navigated one of the world’s most difficult economic periods. In his talk to Farm Bureau members, Page will provide insights into the challenges and choices we face as we feed a more populous and hopefully more prosperous world. He will share what he’s learned in his international travels that brings technology and agriculture together for the betterment of all.
