Grain marketing workshop

Jan. 24, 2013 | 0 comments

To help farmers put together a winning grain marketing game plan, Greenstone Farm Credit Services has joined with the University of Wisconsin Extension to present "Winning the Game: Launch Your Pre-Harvest Marketing Plan," Feb. 5 in Lena.

This workshop is filled with practical, easy-to-execute advice to help farmers secure a good average price for their crop.

Developed by the University of Minnesota's Center for Farm Financial Management, this workshop simulates real-life grain-marketing decisions, enabling farmers to practice marketing without the risk of losing actual money.

During the program, participants put their marketing skills to work, making grain marketing decisions based on actual market information. The course is designed to give farmers a chance to learn about and practice their marketing skills in a no-risk environment.

In "Winning the Game: Launch Your Pre-Harvest Marketing Plan," participants review an actual marketing plan, exploring how target dates and target prices can help producers more consistently secure a good average price for their crop.

Through the game in this workshop, farmers get a feel for how a marketing plan can work and react to real-life market fluctuations. A review of crop insurance logistics for 2013 and how that affects the marketing plan will also be part of the day.

"Winning The Game: Launch Your Pre-Harvest Marketing Plan" starts at 10:15 a.m. at the Lena Town Hall.

The workshop is free, but space is limited. To pre-register for the workshop, contact Scott Reuss, Marinette County UW-Extension, at 715-732-7510 or e-mail to sreuss@marinettecounty.com with information or questions.

The workshop is sponsored by Greenstone Farm Credit Services, and facilitated by Scott Reuss and Nick Schneider, UW-Extension agriculture agents, and Robert Netrefa, Greenstone FCS crop insurance specialist.
