Strategies for managing drought and price risk with forage and livestock insurance programs will be discussed during a series of upcoming workshops presented by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Center for Agricultural Profitability.

The programs will be led by Nebraska Extension specialists and educators who will cover the application process and eligibility requirements for USDA insurance programs and explain how they can be used to mitigate price risk and achieve better profitability.

Specific insurance programs that will be covered are Pasture, Rangeland, and Forage (PRF); Livestock Risk Protection (LRP); and Annual Forage insurance (AF), which has a July 15 enrollment deadline for fall-planted forage. Participants will have an opportunity to practice implementing these tools in a case simulation to better understand the strategies discussed.

The workshop is free to attend, and a meal will be included. Registration is required by June 16 by calling the local co-sponsor for each session.

Beatrice – June 20, 10:30 a.m.
