Two upcoming Nebraska Extension workshops will help farmers develop grain marketing plans for 2023. Both programs will be presented Jan. 17 in Hastings at the Adams County Fairgrounds, 947 S. Baltimore Ave., and Jan. 18 in Lincoln at the office of Nebraska Extension in Lancaster County, 444 Cherrycreek Road.

Do you ever wonder what analysts are really saying about the grain markets? The first workshop, “Grain Marketing Lingo,” uses real audio and video examples to help participants get the “market talk” decoded. Nebraska Extension educator Jessica Groskopf will discuss basis, bears, bulls, long, short and more.

In the second workshop, “Grain Marketing – Playing the Long Game,” Cory Walters, associate professor in the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Department of Agricultural Economics, will explore how grain markets have evolved over time and ways to incorporate this information into your 2023 grain marketing decision making and production cost environment.
