FARMERS GRAIN COMPANY ENCOURAGES YOUNG PRODUCERS TO GROW SMARTER
Over 30 producers between the ages of 20 to 35 attended the Farmers Grain Company Young Producers Symposium, held February 5 in Enid. The event focused on educating young producers on ways they can work smarter, providing information on risk management, emerging technologies, cash flow management & capital acquisition, and the growing value of Farmers Grain Company membership.
"The presentations were very informative," said symposium attendee Drew Malcoff, a producer from Medford. "It was interesting to learn about the multiple variables effecting grain markets. I also enjoyed hearing about the newest technology in the areas of imagery and field scouting."
Jeremiah Pence, a producer from Enid, said "The event challenged me to be a better manager. I can’t know everything, and I need trusted, like-mined partners to help me navigate areas like agronomy, crop insurance, grain marketing, and risk management. Farmers Grain and their industry partners help provide this expertise."
