Many agricultural producers don’t feel confident in their abilities to market the commodities they produce. In today’s agricultural business environment of high input costs and slim or non-existent margins, marketing skills are essential. Brent Young, Colorado State University Extension ag economist, and the Colorado Wheat Growers Association is offering a series of ag marketing webinars.
The Basic Ag Marketing Lunch and Learn-Wheat Producers Edition webinar series covers the mechanics of cash, futures, and options markets with advanced sessions leading up to the development of a marketing plan. Participants will have the opportunity to participate in four additional webinar sessions throughout the marketing year.
The 2023 webinars will be held from noon to 2 p.m., Feb. 7, 14, 21, and 28; and March 7 and 14. One fee covers all six sessions, $50 for Colorado Wheat Growers Association members and $100 for non-CWGA members. To register online go to https://cowheatmarketing.eventbrite.com.
