MAES – Serving the state of Montana’s agricultural and natural resource industries
by providing meaningful and applied agriculture research since 1893.
What we do
Through a concentrated network of eight research centers scattered strategically across
Montana, in addition to the central Bozeman campus hosting Montana State University,
the Montana Agricultural Experiment Station (MAES) represents the on-the-ground agricultural
research profile for Montana’s agriculture and natural resource economies. MAES research
spans the depth and breadth of animal health, food safety, agricultural economics,
plant sciences, natural resources and pest management; providing timely research guided
by local advisory councils.
How we do it
MAES research accomplishments and results embody modern-day achievements spanning
121 years of honoring the legacy and commitment within the Land-grant tradition. It
also allows us to explore unique solutions to distinct and interesting questions and
to connect Montanans with the global community through science, discovery, and outreach.
Michelle Flenniken will present “What's Killing the Bees? The Impacts of Pathogens and other Factors on Honey Bee Health” on March 28 at 6 p.m. at the Baxter Hotel Ballroom in Bozeman. The event is free and open to the public.
