Cattle production risk management workshops
September 8, 2016
Specialists and educators from Nebraska Extension will present vital information about cattle management strategies during cattle production risk management workshops this fall at five locations across the state.
Cattle producers will learn how to reduce risk exposure associated with cattle marketing and forage production to achieve a profitable outcome in uncertain times.
Topics include determining your cost production, marketing tools to protect against price declines and programs for protecting against weather related forage losses. Specific marketing tools covered during the workshop include futures and options as well as Livestock Risk Protection Insurance. Programs covered to guard against weather related losses for grazing land and annual forages include Pasture, Range and Forage and Annual Forage Insurance. Additionally, Farm Service Agency disaster programs reviewed as part of the workshop will include the Livestock Forage Disaster Program and Livestock Indemnity Program.
There is no cost to attend the workshop. A complementary meal will be provided. Registration is required prior to the day of the workshop to ensure meal count. For more information, or to register call the number listed with each location below.
