Ag Marketing course from CSU Extension helps Colorado producers develop innovative marketing skills

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 corn producers improve their marketing skills, CSU Extension Ag Economist Dr. Brent Young is offering a series of ag marketing webinars.

Basic Ag Marketing Lunch and Learn – Corn Producers Edition

The 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 webinars throughout the marketing year and an interactive online corn marketing game.

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.
