EMMETSBURG, Iowa — Winning the Game is a three hour session that is packed with practical advice to help farmers write and execute a post harvest marketing plan. It will teach you to use market signals that help in marketing decisions after harvest.
- Writing your own post-harvest marketing plan
- Post-harvest exit strategies
- What is a “carry” and why it’s important
- A chance to practice exit strategies and tools in a fast-paced and
fun market simulation
- Plus much more!
In “Launch and Land Your Post-Harvest Marketing Plan,” farmers gain a greater understanding of the seasonality of post-harvest crop prices, explore the marketing tools available to capture post-harvest premiums, & evaluate the risk of holding unpriced bushels in storage.
This workshop examines six marketing plans and allows participants to learn about marketing techniques including seasonal price patterns, carrying charges, and the risk of holding unpriced grain in storage. Join us as the workshop challenges you execute a marketing plan in a realistic simulation game.
