Since 2016, the U.S. Grains Council (USGC) and National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) have offered a series of in-person trade school workshops, an opportunity for producers to gain a deeper understanding of international trade policy and its impact on agricultural markets.
The Clayton Yeutter Institute of International Trade and Finance at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln will partner with them and ag groups in the region to bring you the next workshop, August 26 in Omaha, Nebraska. Farmers, ranchers, agribusiness leaders, and anyone invested in the vibrancy of the heartland's agricultural industry are encouraged to attend.
