Budget Cuts to Extension & Research Stations

A proposal to cut roughly $1.2M from Montana Agriculture Experiment Stations and $600,000 from Montana Extension Service is being pushed right now. These would be permanent budget cuts and would take effect July 1, 2010. I feel this is will be a huge hit to our states 4-H program, training sessions for producers, and ag research.

Take a moment to read the news release here, and then take that extra moment to send off an email to show your support for our states ag programs.
