The wide range of topics and instruction offered by the California High School adult education programs are designed to provide information and training for the local community. Although many of the topics are agriculture-related, topics offered over a year's time may provide useful information for those not involved in agricultural pursuits.

The offerings of the current school year are a case in point.

The sessions of "Improving Cattle Profits" and "Organic Production," both already past, are of interest mainly to those in agriculture, as is "Year End Farm Tax Planning," on Dec. 1, and "USDA and Other Farm Programs," on Dec. 22.

The Dec. 15 session may be of interest to both ag and non-ag people. In that session Ron Plain, University of Missouri Agricultural Economist, will provide his perspective on the economy and his prediction of the commodity markets for the coming year.
