This project addresses producers’ marketing and financial risk management needs with post-harvest marketing strategy education. Many bushels are marketed after harvest creating tremendous marketing (price) and financial (cost of ownership) risks. Stressful decisions (during busy harvest) can be reduced with a clear plan before harvest.
The Project Team will develop and deliver specific post harvest marketing education. The Center for Farm Financial Management will develop materials to be delivered by Iowa Farm Bureau and ISU Extension. Follow-up evaluations are planned to measure farm level decisions impact.
Delivery by many methods. Presentations and worksheets at: Market Advantage 2004 Conference (Sept. 8 & 9, two locations), additional educational sessions (at least 6 locations, Sept. - Dec. 2004), Internet delivery (FB Website and NCRME Internet Library) and discussion materials for county FB Boards (800+ farmers). Potential reach of project is 1,200 producers plus wide Internet and newspaper delivery.
