|Many agricultural producers don’t feel confident in their abilities to market the commodities they produce. In today’s agricultural business environment of low commodity markets, high input costs and slim or non-existent margins, marketing skills are essential. In an effort to help farmers and ranchers improve their marketing skills, CSU Extension Ag Economist, Dr. Brent Young is offering a series of ag marketing webinars.
The Monday Night Marketing webinar series is two programs in one. The first meant to be an introductory course covering the mechanics of cash, futures, and options markets. This four week series is designed to meet the needs of agriculture producers who are new to commodity marketing and are looking for techniques to improve the prices they receive for their crops and livestock.
The final four sessions are a more advanced course that will focus on sophisticated marketing techniques and the development of a farm/ranch level marketing plan. These sessions are designed for producers who have a basic understanding of the topics presented in the introductory course.
The webinar format is interactive and will allow for live questions. Each webinar session will be recorded for review if you miss a session or for additional viewing to clarify concepts.
The webinars will be held from 7pm to 9pm, Mondays in February (8, 15, & 22) and March (1, 8, 15, 22, & 29). You can register for each session separately for $15 or both sessions for $25.
