Managing The Margins Workshops

SDSU Extension invites you to a Managing the Margin Workshop focused on market and risk decisions South Dakota producers will need to make this year.

The workshops will be held in Watertown March 18, 2014 from 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the SDSU Extension Regional Center in Watertown (1910 W. Kemp Ave.) and in Mitchell March 20, 2014 from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the SDSU Extension Regional Center on the MTI Campus-Trades Center Building (1800 E. Spruce St).

The workshop will be an interactive learning experience, where producers can discuss different strategies and express their risk tolerance. Each class is divided into two sessions.
The first session will cover market outlook for old and new crops (corn, soybeans, and wheat), local cash price forecasts, and the new farm bill program options. The first session will also discuss the potential profitability and risk associated with different crop planting mixes and grain storage scenarios.

The second session will include a discussion on futures and options marketing strategies that can be used in pre- and post- harvest marketing to add premiums and/or reduce risk. The second session will include historical performances of option and future strategies in marketing years with similar supply and demand fundamentals.

Registration will be $10 on-site. This is payable only by check. Registration will begin 30 minutes before the workshop. Pizza and pop will be provided.
