To assist agriculture producers interested in improving their grain marketing skills, the University of Minnesota Center for Farm Financial Management developed the Winning the Game series. These workshops simulate real-life grain marketing decisions, enabling farmers to practice marketing without the risk of losing actual money. During the three-hour programs, participants put their marketing skills to work, making grain-marketing decisions based on actual market information.
In response to participants stating – “I want to learn more about the pricing tools are available to grain marketers!” The Tool Time workshops were developed. The Tool Time workshop also simulates real-life grain-marketing decisions, enabling farmers to practice marketing without the risk of losing actual money. Tool Time continues building on the highly successful Winning the Game series. During the 3 1/2-hour program, participants put their marketing expertise to work, making grain-marketing decisions based on actual market information.
Starting your pre-harvest marketing plan can be a challenge. This workshop is filled with practical, easy-to-execute advice to help farmers secure a good average price for their crop. In this workshop, we give farmers an opportunity to develop a marketing plan and practice its implementation, using actual daily market prices.
This session will introduce this new educational opportunity for women farmers, review the workshop agenda and give people a sense of the material covered. The co-presenters will share perspectives gained from delivering these workshops across several states.
