Agri-business in Michigan is gearing up for spring at the 77th Annual Michigan Agri-Business Association’s Winter Conference and Trade Show, January 11-13. The conference will have numerous informative sessions, including sessions on climate change, and the public image of agriculture and sustainability, among others.
On January 11, the lunchtime speaker was Bill Daley, Midwest Chairman of J.P. Morgan Chase, Former U.S. Secretary of Commerce, 1997-2000, and former special counsel to the President on issues relating to NAFTA.
Agriculture is one of the few bright spots in Michigan’s economy, generating more than $73 billion and creating more than 1 million jobs. And because Michigan agriculture is driving new opportunities in bio-tech, the MABA event devotes several sessions to issues related to bio-tech, from seed and fertilizer to renewable energy.

The Michigan Agri-Business Association was established in 1903 (then called the Michigan Grain Dealers Association) to further the development and prosperity of businesses engaged in agriculture.
