Agri-Business Day Programs in the past have been devoted to such objectives as explaining characteristics of our rural economy, managing change in the livestock industry and emphasizing the need for economic development. Our primary interest was and continued to be directed toward ways that the economic wellbeing of those living in our rural economy might be improved. We recognize, however, that the welfare of rural families does not depend entirely on their ability to produce and market products grown on the land. It is also tied to the strength of the total economy. The strength of the total economy in turn depends on the functioning of its component parts and on the interrelationships that exist between them.
