Last week the University of Missouri Extension hosted a Successful Wholesale Marketing Workshop in Warrenton, MO. It was a huge success with nearly 50 producers and 7 wholesale buyers in attendance. Below is the list of wholesale buyers that attended the workshop and those who did not attend but are interested in making new contacts with producers. Note that this is not a complete list of wholesale buyers across the state. These are buyers we were aware of from the eastern portion of Missouri. Feel free to give them a call or send an email.
