Follow the Grain - Spring 2006
Two students prepared first-hand accounts of their experiences during the "Follow the Grain" trip to Taiwan.
Accounts by Mary Anne Anderson, a senior in Ag Education from Big Timber, and
by Alex Wheatcroft, a senior from Luther, are included. Follow the Grain is
offered jointly by the departments of Agricultural Economics & Economics, and Plant Sciences &
Plant Pathology. Students study
the science, production, marketing and international markets for grain, and the
class culminates with a trip to facilities in Portland and Taiwan, and visits to
millers, bakers and buyers. Economist Dave Buschena and wheat breeder Phil Bruckner
led the class.
