Managing Volatility in Agriculture: Seminar Series

Managing Volatility in Agriculture: Web Seminar Series
By Agri-Business Council of Oregon

A hard hitting, applied, Web Seminar series on Managing Volatility in Agriculture will be held December 8,9,15, and 16. The four, one hour, interactive segments, will be kicked off on December 8 with presentations on the short and long term pressures creating volatility, and a discussion on how and why producers should approach their businesses to manage the sharp ups and downs much of American Agriculture is experiencing.

Each one hour presentation consists of:

* Two leaders with knowledge and experience as presenters
* An outline of the issues to be discussed
* Identifying tools that producers can use in their decision making
* Time for interaction with presenters on each segment.

Details on the program including speakers and how to join the web seminar will follow in two weeks. If you want to make sure you don’t miss the next announcement, please send an email to, [email protected] , with a simple statement, “Let me Know”.
