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. In an effort to help wheat producers improve their marketing skills, CSU Extension Ag Economist, Dr. Brent Young and the Colorado Association of Wheat Growers is offering a series of ag marketing webinars.
The Basic Ag Marketing Lunch and Learn - Wheat Producers Edition webinar series is meant to be a basic course covering 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 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 six webinars will be held from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. Tuesdays in February March.
