Grain Marketing Workshops Continue Next Week in Eastern Nebraska
The Nebraska Extension Grain Marketing Workshops continue this month with location- and commodity-specific grain marketing 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 Cornhusker Economics article, 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 are funded by the Nebraska Corn Board. Registrations are limited to 40 participants each.
