Free grain marketing workshops to be held in Bethany and Chillicothe


Workshops will be held to help farmers manage commodity price risk and obtain higher commodity prices for corn and soybeans.

One workshop will be held in the Community Room of the BTC Bank in Bethany Monday, and another will be in the Conference Room of FCS Financial in Chillicothe March 26th. Both workshops will run from 10 to 2 o’clock.
