    Join us for our 2014 Holiday Event at the University Club. Lunch will take place in Cathedral Hall, with a presentation by Dr. Robert Easter and remarks from Orion Samuelson. 

    "Global demand for agricultural output is expected to double by 2050 driven in part by population growth but significantly influenced by growing affluence.  Income growth typically results in new dietary patterns with greater demand for meat, milk and eggs as well as fruits and vegetables.  And, 21st century agricultural technology is quickly spreading around the world.  For a century Midwestern agriculture has been the envy of the world but it remains to be seen how the regional food and agricultural system will respond to this changing landscape."
