National Sorghum Producers to Host Free Risk Management Workshops for Producers in February

Mon, 28 Jan 2019 11:50:55 CST

National Sorghum Producers to Host Free Risk Management Workshops for Producers in February National Sorghum Producers will hold two free half-day risk management workshops for producers of all crops Feb. 5 in Garden City, Kansas, and Feb. 6 in Perryton, Texas.


The workshops, made possible by a grant from USDA Risk Management Agency, are designed to assist producers in mitigating production and marketing risk during extreme market volatility through training on crop insurance strategies and whole farm revenue protection. The speakers at both events bring years of experience in their fields, and their expertise covers a variety of crops.


“These workshop will provide tremendous educational value to not only sorghum producers but producers of all crops,” John Duff, NSP strategic business director, said. “With the small margins we’re seeing on the farm, now more than ever, active risk management proves vitally important.”


The Feb. 5 workshop will be held in Garden City at the Golf Club at Southwind from 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Speakers include Tom Sell of Combest, Sell & Associates, Art Barnaby of Kansas State University, John Miller of Southwest Agribusiness Consulting and Chris Cogburn of National Sorghum Producers.


The Feb. 6 workshop will be held in Perryton at the Ochiltree County Expo Center from 8 a.m. to noon. Speakers include Tom Sell of Combest, Sell & Associates, Joe Outlaw of Texas A&M University, John Miller of Southwest Agribusiness Consulting and Chris Cogburn of National Sorghum Producers.


“The tools and knowledge provided in the workshops can help producers in multiple situations,” Duff said. “I highly recommend producers take advantage of this opportunity.”
