Agricultural Marketing Workshop

Our Agricultural Service Board will be hosting a workshop on successful marketing strategies for agricultural producers. The workshop will be presented by MNP, LLP.

Topics will include:

  • What is a futures market?
  • What is working for other producers?
  • Survivable, acceptable, favourable breakeven target points.
  • Forward contacting (marketing before the crop is grown).

*REGISTRATION IS FREE*

The workshop will be hosted on March 8th, 2017 at 10:00am to 12:00pm. You can register by calling our office at (403) 653-4977.


Workshop Suggestions

We are looking for feedback on future workshop topics. We have a few sessions already planned for this year (on equipment economics and product marketing), but we are open to suggestions that meet the needs of our residents and producers.
 
Some ideas that we are kicking around:
  • Starting a farm safety program.
  • Identifying and controlling weeds.
  • Managing and owning acreages (new or old).
Let us know if any of these would be of interest to you, and if you would like to make a suggestion, shoot us a message on Facebook or email our Agricultural Fieldman at rod@cardstoncounty.com.
