The Mt Ag Price tool uses USDA Ag Marketing Service (AMS) data to show current and historical prices for Montana grains and hay. Users can compare those prices for seven regions in Montana, and for different categories (e.g. protein content, grade, etc.). Prices are charted for the time span selected, and can be downloaded as a .csv file as well. Other prices, such as livestock, will be added soon.
Kate Binzen Fuller is an assistant professor and extension specialist in the Department of Agricultural Economics and Economics at Montana State University. She holds an M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of California, Davis. Her extension and research program focuses on the economics of farm management decisions, including USDA programs and policies, pests and diseases responses, and issues surrounding leasing and land values. Kate’s extension program takes her on the road often, resulting in a rapidly expanding knowledge and appreciation for Montana’s interstates, highways, and (especially) gravel roads.
