Join Ag. Marketing Specialist Matt LeRoux at a Profitable Meat Marketing workshop near you to find out if you are covering all your meat marketing costs—including your TIME—and bringing in a profit.
In the workshop, you will learn how to develop your farm’s marketing strategy and how to set specific marketing objectives to make your job easier. In addition to marketing tips, you’ll learn about Cornell Cooperative Extension’s NEW Meat Price Calculator. The calculator uses your farm’s data to develop pricing for meat sold by the hanging weight or by the cut. It accounts for processing and marketing costs, allows you to build in a profit, then lets you adjust the pricing of each cut until you reach your goal. Finally, you will learn more about navigating the MeatSuite, a free website to help your farm reach consumers seeking local meat in bulk.
Alternate date: the Washington County session of this workshop will take place on January 12 at CCE- Washington Co. 415 Lower Main St. Hudson Falls, NY
