The Ag Business and Policy division of MU Extension will conduct a series of grain marketing workshops directed at Missouri’s grain producers. These workshops are designed to help farmers manage commodity price risk and obtain higher commodity prices for their corn and soybeans. The workshops are designed to include an overview of managing basis and price risks with the futures markets, the past performance of marketing strategies specific to Missouri regional conditions, developing a sample marketing plan resulting in skills they can extend to their operation, providing resources to monitor the performance of marketing strategies, and introducing advanced futures market concepts. The workshop is done in cooperation with the Food and Agricultural Policy Research Institute (FAPRI).

The workshop will be held at the MFA Rail Facility in Hamilton from 10 a.m.- 2 p.m. on March 2. Lunch will be provided. There is no cost to attend, but space is limited. If you would like to RSVP, have questions, or would like to request special accommodations, please call the Caldwell County Extension Office at (816) 586 – 1010.
