The Iowa State University Extension is offering a workshop geared toward women that might be interested in marketing swine. The workshop focuses on risk management education and decision making tools.  The class will take place on Monday at 1:00pm at the Washington County Extension Office.  ISU Extension Swine Field Specialist Mark Stolie says the workshops will provide attendees an opportunity to talk about marketing tools and will give a hands-on simulation to practice risk management skills without having to risk actual assets.  The workshop is free, but pre-registration is requested to make sure there is a minimum of six participants.  For more information, contact Tom Miller at 653-4811 or tmiller@iastate.edu.
