Dozens of local college students and agriculture producers learn how to prepare for uncertain markets.
Arvest Bank and Top Third Ag Marketing teamed up to hold two seminars this evening. The first featured about 40 students from Pitt State, Missouri Southern and NEO. And the second was for 60 Four State agriculture producers. The seminars gave the students a better idea of what they’ll face once they graduate college, while helping the producers find the best way from keeping their livelihood from being compromised.
“You’ll be surprised what a farmer handles in total sales and exposure to these markets they have no control over,” says Ray Tubaugh, Comm. Loan Manager, Arvest.
“I feel like our job as a company is to help educate people. And the more you know. The more tools you know are available to you, the better discussions you can make,” says Dan O’Bryan, Speaker, Top Third Ag Marketing.
O’Bryan says the goal is to help all those who attended to prepare for normal risks, like natural disasters, and unexpected situations, like disease outbreaks.
