Ag Decision Maker unveils new look for 25th anniversary

If you haven't noticed yet, we have a new and improved look to our website! The Ag Decision Maker, published by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, unveiled a new design Jan. 16.

The new site offers the same timely information Iowans and farmers across the Midwest have depended on for years, but in a more mobile-friendly format.

The site includes a wide range of resources for both crop and livestock producers, including whole farm resources, business development resources, information for cooperatives and the energy markets.

This has been a multi-year project to make the materials more accessible and mobile friendly. We cleared out some dated materials that weren’t relevant anymore, with mobile friendly being our real goal.

The site continues to be updated monthly with some updates that occur more often, including market prices and farm business data.

The goal of Ag Decision Maker is to keep producers and the industry informed, so they can make timely decisions for their operation.

Links to videos and current webinars, www.extension.iastate.edu/agdm/info/meetings.html are also available, including farm bill information, farmland leasing information, the Farm Financial Planning Program at Iowa State and much more.

The website improvements wouldn't have been possible without the help of Liisa Jarvinen, who has been involved in numerous website projects at Iowa State University.

Another addition are recorded presentations on Ag Market Outlook with Chad Hart, with changes or reports impacting the markets. These videos and more can be found on the Ag Market Outlook page.

Since its launch, Ag Decision Maker has supported the efforts of the Farm Management Team, and we look forward to continuing that virtual presence along with going back to more in-person events.
