Michigan State University Extension and Michigan Corn Marketing Program will be offering an on-line Introductory Pricing/Marketing Workshop for Grains, two nights a week for four weeks beginning the first week of February. You may attend this workshop at either several group meetings around the state, or at your home/work computer. The workshop will be taught by Jim Hilker, MSU Professor and Extension Marketing Economist, who has been teaching this material to students and farmers for more than 30 years. Hilker has written the Outlook Article in the Michigan Farm News for more than 20 years. This workshop will help you better understand his and others pricing comments.
Registration for this workshop is required by Feb. 1, so workshop handouts can be sent to participants prior to our first session. There is no cost for this workshop series for individuals that can download and print workshop materials.
Sessions will run 7 p.m.– 8:30 p.m
