Do you have a plan for managing risk on your farm? Join Rural Advancement Foundation International (RAFI) staff members in discussing crucial farm risk management issues and develop a plan for better addressing risk on your farm. We especially welcome veteran farmers and will focus on a handful of topics related to farm finance and risk management.

Attendees will come away with the knowledge necessary to better assess their credit readiness and an understanding of the different types of agricultural lenders. Relevant federal farm programs and new crop insurance options for small and midsize farms will also be discussed.
