So what do you do when you’ve done all that and still have marginal profits? Jeanne Reeves, agricultural economist with Cotton Incorporated, says it may be time for you to increase your marketing skills.

To help producers accomplish this, Reeves is coordinating an introductory and intermediate workshop entitled “Hedging With Options for Cotton Producers.” Workshop topics include:

Why are options in cotton futures critical to your business?

What can options do for you and how?

Fundamental and technical cotton overviews and possible price scenarios.

Sponsored by the New York Board of Trade and Cotton Incorporated, the workshop will be held in Tunica, Feb. 24 and 25. To register for the workshop, contact Beverly Cafferty at 1-800-HEDGEIT (800-443-4348) or e-mail Tim Barry at tbarry@nybot.com.
