Fishermen and farmers in Lafayette are getting some insight with selling their products.

The LSU Ag Center held its Market-ready Producer workshop to teach producers business strategies and how to effectively market to restaurants and wholesalers.

"The average increase in sales was 20,000 and above," said Alessandro Holzapfel, Extension Associate, LSU Ag Center. "And about 60% of them changed their business to accomodate new tactics and new methods they learned in our workshop."
