Idaho farmers and ranchers can pick up the latest information about agricultural markets from a University of Idaho computer bulletin board.
Called Idaho Agri-Net, producers can connect their computer to the service with a telephone modem and communications software. The cost of Agri-Net is only a phone call.Among the items on the bulletin board are reports on crop production, cattle on feed, milk output, potato stocks and monthly U.S. Agriculture Department outlooks.
General farm and business management programs are in the computer link. Farmers also can send non-commercial programs they would like to share.
Agri-Net is operated out of Idaho Falls by Sandra Bragg.
