Workshop audio recording from the 2017 MOSES Organic Farming Conference.


John Bobbe and Heath Dewey
Saturday Session I

Imports of organic grain have put downward pressure on domestic organic prices. Learn about the causes and what you can do in the face of this organic market climate. Plus see past and current organic market pricing, and learn how to access current market reports from the USDA Livestock, Poultry, and Grain Market News.

John Bobbe is the executive director of the Organic Farmers’ Agency for Relationship Marketing, Inc. (OFARM). He is also the author of the book Marketing Organic Grain, A Farmers’ Guide. He and his wife reside on a third-generation farm in Scandinavia, Wis.

Heath Dewey works with all of USDA’s market divisions to update and improve organic reporting for the organic community. He grew up in Kansas on a farm operation consisting of a cow/calf herd and grain/hay crops.
