Individuals interested in expanding their knowledge of marketplace challenges are encouraged to take advantage of the IGP-KSU Risk Management course on August 7-11, 2017 at Kansas State University's IGP Institute Conference Center in Manhattan, Kansas.
The course is divided into two parts: basic and advanced. The first three days are focused on key elements of price risk management and hedging through the use of grain futures. The basic section of the course will also focus on basis trading and its impact on those who purchase and sell grains and oil seeds.
"In this basic segment, we cover what the commodity exchanges provide, how they can be used to manage risk and the pitfalls of trading futures," says Jay O'Neil, senior agricultural economist for the IGP Institute at Kansas State University.
The second segment of the course will take place during the last two days and will focus on the use of futures options and the OTC markets when dealing with risk management.
