Grain Marketing Workshops this Month

Grain Marketing Workshops this Month March 10, 2017

Location- and commodity-specific grain marketing information will be presented during the Nebraska Extension Grain Marketing Workshops to be held across Nebraska this winter. The meetings will provide information and tools to help grain producers minimize losses during this time of low prices.

Topics include developing a written marketing plan and developing an understanding of basis and carrying charges. The workshops feature the Marketing in a New Era (MINE) simulator and the Grain Marketing Plan smartphone application. (See the Oct. 19 Cornhusker Economics, Successful Extension Meetings and Innovative Economic Research: Grain Marketing Simulations, for more on the new MINE marketing tool.

Register for these meetings at go.unl.edu/marketingworkshops. Each workshop begins at 9:30 a.m. and ends at 3 p.m. A complimentary lunch is provided. Workshops, which are funded by the Nebraska Corn Board, are limited to 40 participants each.
