Angie Setzer of Citizens Elevator in Charlotte, MI will talk about wheat marketing at first Wheat Wisdom Webinar.

While the pandemic persists across the globe, advancing knowledge and expertise in wheat production remains. Virtual technology allows people to come together from anywhere they are in the world. In a typical year, the Michigan Wheat Program and MSU Extension would host an annual meeting where farmers and agribusiness come together face to face and share research, ideas, and issues to advance the wheat industry in Michigan. But the pandemic will not get us down; instead, we will host the Wheat Wisdom Webinar Series. One benefit of going virtual is that we are able to bring a remarkable set of speakers from across the globe to share their expertise with us. This week's webinar features Angie Setzer talking about wheat marketing.

Angie Setzer, is Grain Vice Pres. for Citizens Elevator, LLC, in Charlotte, managing five elevator locations. She has extensive experience in a unique direct-ship cash grain program. Setzer writes Pro Farmers’ weekly “Cash is King” column, is the @GoddessofGrain on Twitter and a frequent commentator on Weather Channel, AgDay, US Farm Report and other media.
