Grain Marketing Workshops to Feature Location-Specific Information

Grain Marketing Workshops to Feature Location-Specific Information October 3, 2016

Grain marketing workshops will be offered at two Nebraska sites this fall to help grain producers minimize losses during this time of low prices.

Nebraska Extension Educators will present location- and commodity-specific marketing information. Topics include developing a written marketing plan, and understanding basis and carrying charges. The workshops feature the Marketing in a New Era simulator and the Grain Marketing Plan smartphone application. Learn more about how the Marketing in a New Era interactive tool can help you at the meeting and read up on its development in the Oct. 19 Cornhusker Economics, Successful Extension Meetings and Innovative Economic Research: Grain Marketing Simulations.

Register at go.unl.edu/marketingworkshops or by calling Robert Tigner at 308-345-3390. Each workshop will begin at 9:30 a.m. and end at 3 p.m. Complimentary lunch is provided. Workshops, which are funded by the Nebraska Corn Board, are limited to 40 participants each.
