Wheat marketing webinars planned

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.
