The Iowa Corn Growers Association (ICGA), Iowa Corn Promotion Board (ICPB) and ISU Extension & Outreach-Page County will host a Marketing Seminar as part of the Iowa Corn, Crop Fair series in Clarinda, Iowa on Wednesday, January 12 at the Ice House Restaurant beginning at 6 p.m.
“Crop fairs give ICGA members access to information they might not get elsewhere,” explained Adam Bierbaum, District 7 ICGA Director who chairs the Grassroots Network, Membership & Checkoff (GNMC) Committee. “Each crop fair is customized to include topics to fit each region of the state, with opportunities for farmer-to-farmer learning and a chance to interact with subject area experts on a variety of topics including legislative policy, conservation, market development and risk management.”
Supper will be provided to attendees starting at 6 p.m. with the program to follow at 6:30 p.m. Speaker Tim Christensen, Farm Management Specialist with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach will cover increased input costs impacting production, building a pre-harvest marketing plan, market outlook and livestock risk protection (LRP) for cattle producers.
“With higher input and land costs, it is more important than ever that producers understand the marketing tools available to help protect their investments. This meeting will highlight tools and strategies for grain and cattle producers to reduce market risk,” shared Christensen.
RSVP by Monday, January 10, 2022 to Dee Dino, ISU Extension-Page County at 712-542-5171 or Kristen Akers, Iowa Corn at 515-229-9981.
