Fundamental analysis, crop insurance, hedging, technical indicators and global demand are just a few of the factors that determine the price you receive for your grain or livestock. How can you ever understand them all?
Grain and livestock marketing is complex and intimidating. Instead of trying to be an expert in all these areas, strive for a solid basic understanding, says Jamie Wasemiller, a market analyst with the Gulke Group.
At a special pre-conference workshop ahead of the 2017 Tomorrow’s Top Producer conference, Wasemiller, as well as Gulke Group’s Jeff Beal and Rabobank’s Nick Stokes, will help attendees make their operations more profitable. The event will be July 19 in Nashville.
Through hands-on learning, attendees will learn about commodity-market analysis, the components of a marketing plan and the mechanics of developing a marketing plan for their operation. At the end of the session, attendees will leave with a blueprint of their 2017/18 marketing plans.
“When we go back home, we need to be able to make educated and intentional marketing decisions,” Wasemiller says.
A few of the topics the speakers will cover include:
- Supply and demand estimates
- How to use fundamental analysis
- Brazil/China impact for the short and long term
- Using insurance as a marketing tool
- Farm financials and how they impact your operation
The cost to attend is only $69.
