The morning program will focus on market outlook and managing risk in the grain markets. Speakers from Interstate Commodies, Inc will be featured.

After lunch, provided compliments of Interstate Commodities Inc, participants will get a comprehensive look at the new Farm Program being offered grain producers through Farm Service Agency. The choices to be made for participation will be explained and examples of the alternatives offered. FSA Director Aaron Stockberger and Stan Smith from OSU Extension will provide the program.

Participation is free, but reservations are required.

PS: if you happen to need a blank "farm agreement" for the purpose of receiving a 'cash rent' statement from landlords to satisfy the needs of FSA, find one linked here in PDF.
