Gem County Hold Market Seminar for Members

Gem County--Farm Bureau marketing consultant Clark Johnston meets with Gem County farmers Monday morning.

Johnston focused on marketing, risk management, but also the futures market. Johnston says last year Brazil and China were aggressive buyers in the world wheat market.

 "China has a lot of mouths to feed and we're in a good place right now with our exports off the west coast." Johnston added they're going to be a good market for years to come for Idaho Wheat.
