1. Select an agricultural commodity (i.e., milk).
2. Research and describe how the processing, packaging and marketing of this product affects its price. Compare this to the marketing and pricing of a nonagricultural product.
3. Report your findings in an essay format. For example: Once all contributing parties receive payment for the production of milk, distributors add approximately $1.50 to the price of each gallon in order to make a profit (i.e., farmers labor costs approximately $1.50 per gallon, bottling and delivery costs approximately $0.58 per gallon, supermarkets’ in-store expense approximately $0.40 per gallon).
4. Turn in with packets or via email.
