ITHACA – A Grain Marketing Workshop will be held 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 30 and Thursday, Jan 31.
The two-day, in-depth, hands-on workshop will help row-crop farmers create effective grain marketing plans specific to their operation and financial condition.
Grain Marketing: Dollar and Cents is designed to strengthen participants’ ability to understand financial benchmarking, improve their basic marketing knowledge, develop accurate production costs estimates and write a grain marketing plan. Grain Marketing: Dollar and Cents will take participants through a case-study farm, making them evaluate different financial situations: one with a strong financial standing and cash on hand, the other a tighter scenario, where they would need to rely on grain sales to make payments on operating loans.
It will be held at the University of Nebraska Eastern Nebraska Research and Extension Center, August N. Christenson Research and Education Building at 1071 County Road G near Ithaca. Cost is $100 per person. To register, call Nebraska Extension at 402-624-8030.
