Helena, Mont. – The Montana Department of Agriculture and Pulse Advisory Committee will host Montana Pulse Day as scheduled on December 9th in Great Falls at the Best Western Heritage Inn.
The annual event will feature a panel of pulse producers, industry representatives, researchers, officials, and pulse manufacturers. The event will also highlight activities associated with the 2016 International Year of Pulses to market and promote Montana pulses.

We want to offer an event for producers that provides helpful and timely information and education. The Montana Pulse Advisory Committee will serve as hosts for this important conference,” said Kim Falcon, deputy director for the department.
