A Stock Tip Just for MT Farmers and Ranchers

April 11, 2007

Montana farmers and ranchers might think it’s a deal too good to be true, but it’s the real thing. They can earn thousands of dollars for doing what they’re already doing with their land by signing up for Chicago Climate Exchange Carbon Credit Program (CCX). Jim Sargent with Montana Farmers Union says using no-till methods and growing certain grasses helps keep carbon underground, which can offset greenhouse gas pollution.

"When you can hold carbons in the soil, then that’s going to help our atmosphere. Obviously, it’s big in the news now with the global warming discussion.

Montana was just admitted to the Climate Exchange program, and farmers and ranchers can start signing up now.
Sargent believes payments will add up for average farmers and ranchers over the five years of the program…

"It actually figures out to be pretty substantial in the five-year period of about $18,000, maybe to help pay some of your land taxes."

Farmers and ranchers can enroll in the Chicago Climate Exchange program via the Montana Farmers Union Web site at
