Nebraska Extension’s efforts to assist farmers and ranchers to achieve profitable outcomes continue with a series of workshops that will offer tools and strategies to reduce risk exposure associated with cattle marketing and forage production.

In November and December, Extension specialists and educators will conduct “Managing Cattle and Forage Production Risk: Protecting Profits in Uncertain Times” in Chadron, Sidney, Arthur, Columbus and Broken Bow.

Each three-hour workshop will offer information about protecting against price declines through futures, options and insurance; programs that will guard against weather-related losses; disaster programs; and current issues and opportunities facing the cattle industry.

The sessions are free and include a complementary meal. Registration is required by three days prior to each workshop, at or by calling the local contact for each session.
