CIH continues its winter webinar series

Webinar series to focus on management of hog price risk. Next session February 18.

The tools to manage hog price risk management have improved significantly in the last 6 months. As a pork producer, the proper use of these tools could have a significant impact on your bottom line. With that in mind, CIH is excited to announce a Winter Webinar Series designed to examine the benefits of these tools and their proper implementation into the overall risk management plan of producers.
