These events will be taking place in February at five locations around the state.

When are the some of the best times to market bushels and how can a marketing plan be implemented? Learn how successful crop marketing can be achieved with a disciplined and flexible marketing plan.
Ag Lender Communication & ExpectationsTo properly serve farm customers, ag lenders must have strong business relationships with their customers. It’s those early conversations, beginning with presenting an idea, all the way to final loan approval that helps builds that relationship. In this discussion, ag lender(s) will discuss what an optimal client/lender relationship looks like, how a lender can be involved in business decisions and important conversations to have with your lender about your goals.
Ag Carbon Markets Economics SimulationMany of the agricultural carbon market programs offered differ in terms of required practice changes, contract length, payments per output vs. per practice, and other details. A key question, not often talked about, is wheather or not the program will be a net return for the farmer? This simulation will help to answer that question by exploring a menu of carbon programs based on expected net returns from expected carbon sequestration over the life of the contract.
