Agricultural Economics Expert Witness ND 537567

Expertise Description

I am originally from a large farm in Southwestern Nebraska. I have more than 5 years of professional experience in the field of agricultural economics. As a faculty member, I regularly work with farmers, lenders, government agencies, and private businesses to address real-world issues in the agricultural industry. My primary areas of concentration center on production and commercial agriculture including grains/oil seeds, cattle, and fiber production. Much of my scholarly and applied work also focuses on farm management, agricultural lending and risk, and farm asset management, especially farm/ranch land values, rents, and production costs. The applied nature of my professional work is especially useful when an intimate knowledge of the agricultural industry is necessary to derive monetary conclusions and implied costs. I am offering my services as agricultural economics expert witness.
