Marketing View. Volatility and increased margin pressure makes your marketing plan more important than ever. That's why Farm Journal Media is holding a Marketing Rally, Dec. 3–4, 2009, in Chicago to help producers improve their marketing skills.
This is a powerhouse event where 15 of the nation's leading market analysts will participate in a Marketing Roundtable discussion for the "U.S. Farm Report" television program. Yep, 15 analysts on one stage…at the same time. You'll learn about the various marketing philosophies and which best fits your approach to risk management.
Throughout the event, analysts will be on hand to meet with you personally and explain their philosophies. Eight of them are offering breakout sessions where you can learn more about their approaches to marketing the 2010 crop. See the Marketing Rally blog at AgWeb.com for more info.
