K-State offers Risk-Assessed Marketing Workshops


Changes in farm legislation, coupled with volatile crop prices have many agricultural producers considering different methods for managing yield and price risk. Kansas State University will host three Risk-Assessed Marketing Workshops during February to address those different methods. Two of the workshops include basic information and one is more advanced.

The workshops, presented by K-State Research and Extension agricultural economists Art Barnaby and Dan O'Brien, will introduce producers to an integrated marketing and production management approach that combines government programs, crop insurance and alternative marketing techniques.

Among the topics to be addressed are details of crop insurance programs, agricultural futures, put and call options, forward contracts, marketing loans and basis contracts.

RAM workshop dates, locations and K-State Research and Extension contact information for each site include:

Feb. 6--Hays, RAM I (basic), Stacy Campbell, 785-628-9430 or scampbel@ksu.edu.

Feb. 7--Hays, RAM II (advanced), Stacy Campbell, 785-628-9430 or scampbel@ksu.edu.
