Prior to Kansas Corn Symposium

Risk Management Workshop

January 23, 2020 at K-State Alumni Center, Manhattan

Kansas Corn’s Risk Management Workshop is focused on helping farmers refine their grain marketing skills and evaluate risk management tools. The workshop’s goal is to enable farmers with tools and action steps to make positive changes in their operations to help with risk management during these difficult times in production agriculture. This workshop is being held before the Kansas Corn Symposium–we hope you’ll participate in both!
