Nebraska Extension will be hosting a risk management workshop for cattle producers on Thursday, June 7, 2018 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Eastern Nebraska Research and Extension Center (formerly ARDC) near Mead, NE. Cattle producers will learn how to reduce risk exposure associated with cattle marketing and forage production to achieve a profitable outcome in uncertain times. This material is funded in partnership by USDA, Risk Management Agency.
Topics covered during the workshop will include determining your production strategies for the cow herd, marketing tools to protect against price declines, and programs for protecting against weather related forage losses. Specific topics covered during the workshop will discuss new and existing marketing options, insurance options, and disaster programs available to cattle producers as well as the current and long range weather outlook.
The workshop does not have a cost for attending and a meal will be provided, but registration is required to ensure an accurate meal count. For more information and to pre-register by June 4, please call Nebraska Extension in Saunders County at 402-624-8030.
