Farmers often mention that their crop marketing is challenging and needs improvement. Now a workshop is available with a full 18-month marketing plan to help producers understand the big picture of effectively marketing their crop. Titled “How to Get $4 Corn: Learn Crop Marketing from Start to Finish”, this two-hour workshop is coming to Atlantic on Tuesday evening December 10th. Seven other locations will also be offered across Iowa throughout the winter.
Developed by the Center for Farm Financial Management and Iowa Farm Bureau, the workshop teaches the long view in crop marketing. The workshop, including crop marketing simulation, will be facilitated by Ed Kordick of the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation, and hosted locally by Patrick Hatting, Farm Management Specialist for Southwest Iowa with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach.
The workshop will be offered on Tuesday, Dec. 10 at 6:30 p.m., in the back meeting room at The Whitney, 222 Chestnut Street in downtown Atlantic. There is no cost to attend the meeting. Pre-registration is encouraged to help plan for materials. Walk-in registrations are also welcome. Local sponsors of this program include First Whitney Bank, Cass County Farm Bureau and Cass County Extension.
