Marketing is a major part of the total enterprise production cycle. Producers continue to ask questions about marketing strategies and practices.
ISU Extension in Mitchell and Floyd Counties partnered with the Iowa Farm Bureau and local lenders to provide a three hour workshop in pre-harvest marketing strategies. The workshop was held in Floyd and Mitchell Counties in February of 2009. Outcome Statement:
A total of 26 producers from Floyd and Mitchell Counties took advantage of the workshop offered. Comments were favorable with evaluations showing a 4.28 rating on a 1-5 point scale. Participants indicated an increased understanding of hedging, puts/calls, and forward contracts. They also valued the ‘hands-on’ part of the program.
