Market Outlook Program with Jerry Gulke

Jerry Gulke, The Gulke Group, will be the featured speaker on Thursday, September 6 at Lavender Crest Winery, 5401 US Highway 6, Colona.  The evening will begin with a buffet dinner at 6:15 p.m., followed by an update from Gold Star FS Grain Merchandiser, Mike Schaver. Reservations must made by August 30 to guarantee a meal.

Jerry Gulke was born and raised on a grain and livestock farm near Ellendale, North Dakota.  He received his degree in electrical engineering from North Dakota State University and an MBA from Northern Illinois University.  In 1976, he began farming full time in northern Illinois and is currently active in the corn and soybean production along with the overall management of the farm.  It was his common-sense ability to manage his farm and market his production successfully in some of the most troubling times in agriculture that ultimately led to contributing to Top Producer magazine.  After gaining the respect and attention among producers, it led Jerry into the field of consulting and the formation of The Gulke Group Inc.

Cost for the series is $75.00 and a single session is $25.00 (if not pre-registered cost will be $30.00).  To make reservations, please call the Henry County Farm Bureau (309) 937-2411, Rock Island County Farm Bureau (309) 736-7432 or Mercer County Farm Bureau (309) 582-5116.
