Women Marketing Grain

With unpredictable crop prices and tight margins, marketing can make the difference in the profitability of corn and soybean production. How well farmers get paid for a year’s worth of work can be wrapped up in just a few marketing decisions. In this course, women will learn how to manage price risk using tools like forward contracts, futures and options contracts, alterative marketing contracts, and crop insurance. Participants will work in a computer lab to access online decision tools and to develop a marketing plan.
