Grain marketing series set

Now Media Group


Area farmers are welcomed to attend the free upcoming grain marketing meeting series, being hosted by UW-Extension and area agribusiness.

The first session will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 28, at the Melrose American Legion Hall, 303 N Washington St, Melrose, WI. A free lunch will be provided by Cargill.

Nathan Frise of Cargill and Brenda Boetel of UW-River Falls will discuss the grain and livestock market, providing an update of market forces — domestic and international, and an outlook for 2016.

Shawn Conley, UW small grains specialist will join the meeting via teleconference to discuss with growers the Soybean Yield Gap project. The Yield Gap project will identify the key factors that preclude the State's Soybean Producers from obtaining yields that should be potentially possible on their respective individual farms, and how farmers can participate in the program.
