'Producing for Profit' workshops scheduled Agricultural producers are invited to attend a series of Extension workshops in February entitled "Producing for Profit." The workshops are scheduled for Feb. 8, 15 and 22 at the 4-H Center in Vermillion. Sessions will start at 10 a.m. and conclude by 3 p.m. each day.
The first session will explore production risks, strategies of risk management and crop enterprise budget planning. During the second session, producers will look at blending crop insurance into the marketing plan using target prices developed through budget planning. At the final workshop, producers will identify profit centers and develop financial risk management strategies that will fit their operations.
The workshops are being conducted by Dr. Matt Diersen, SDSU Extension economics and Jack Davis, area farm management specialist.
Producing for Profit is the first in a series of programs which also include "Pricing for Profit," "Staying in Business" and "Developing Your Business." Individuals who attend all of the workshops through each level can achieve the "Master Manager" designation.
