Nebraska Extension to Host Grain Marketing Workshops in Crawford, Oshkosh

Nebraska Extension is hosting two grain marketing workshops for farmers in Crawford and Oshkosh, during the afternoons of Wednesday, Jan. 31 and Wednesday, Feb. 7, respectively.

Do you ever wonder what analysts are really saying about the grain markets? During these workshops, Nebraska Extension Educator Jessica Groskopf will use real audio and video examples. The workshop will help you get the “market talk” decoded. She will discuss basis, bears, bulls, long, short, and more.

“With grain prices falling, it is time for farmers to sharpen their marketing skills,” Groskopf said. “This workshop is an opportunity to look at the coming year and the forces driving the current grain market conditions.”

The program is free to attend. Pre-registration is requested one week prior to each workshop.
