Katie Hancock, Water Valley, Ky., recently joined Brock Associates as an agricultural commodity marketing consultant and will work one-on-one with farmers to minimize market risk and capture market opportunities.
“Brock Associates is extremely pleased to have Katie become a member of our market consulting team,” states Jason Moss, Chief Operating Officer and fellow marketing consultant for Brock Associates. “She is bright and can use her experience as a grower to help farmers achieve their marketing goals.”
A 2008 graduate of Murray State University, Hancock earned a degree in agricultural business before returning to farm full-time and learn at the side of her father Joe Sanger on a 6,400-acre grain farm. Hancock owns two small grain farms and provides managerial accounting and marketing input to her husband Jordan Hancock and his cousin who farm 5,000 acres.
“I love farming and am excited that my position with Brock Associates allows me the opportunity to interact with farmers while remaining active in farming,” Hancock explains.
“One of my goals as a marketing consultant is to help remove the intimidation and emotions connected to marketing. I also want fellow growers to understand marketing tools available to them and have them comfortable using those tools.”
Hancock will work out of a Brock Associates satellite office on her farm near Water Valley, Ky. You can contact Katie by calling Brock Associates at 800-558-3431.
