COLLEGE STATION – Ag Policy, International Trade Outlook and Student Study Abroad Experiences is the theme for the Sept. 30 program and tailgate hosted by the department of agricultural economics at Texas A&M University.
“We want former students, current students and friends of the department to come join us for these events,” said Dr. Parr Rosson, department head. “This will be our sixth year to host tailgate activities. It’s always a good time to network and present some of the activities we are working on through the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, Texas A&M AgriLife Research and teaching here in the department.”
All activities are scheduled prior to the kickoff of the football game between Texas A&M and South Carolina at Kyle Field. The AgriLife Extension program will be in the AgriLife Center, 578 John Kimbrough Blvd. on the Texas A&M campus in College Station. Immediately following the program, tailgate festivities will begin under the tent at the AgriLife Complex.
Program speakers and topics include:
– Dr. Joe Outlaw, co-director of the Agricultural and Food Policy Center at Texas A&M and AgriLife Extension economist, farm bill and policy update.
– Dr. Luis Ribera, director of the Center for North American Studies at Texas A&M and AgriLife Extension economist, international trade update.
– Dr. Fred Boadu, assistant department head for undergraduate affairs, along with agricultural economics students who have participated in study abroad programs.
