Judy Martz on Jobs

Former Republican MT Governor


Invest in Agricultural Product Promotion

For our number one industry, agriculture, I will be a true champion for better markets and more opportunities.If we want better markets for our producers and their quality commodities, we must aggressively seek new opportunities. In 2000, we invested in Agricultural Product Promotion. This investment will increase domestic and international Department of Agriculture-assisted product sales by 100% each year.

This investment will increase by 20 each year the number of food processing companies that participate in “Montana Growth Through Agriculture”-sponsored domestic and foreign trade missions. It will form an electronic clearinghouse of niche marketing ideas and trends. It will assist 15 Montana agri-businesses each year in the development of marketing plans that accurately reflect consumer trends in the marketplace. It will provide for educational functions and informal services to inform Montanans regarding agriculture’s role in the environment and in the state’s economy.
