Workshop on Risk Management Resources and Tools for Farmers & RAFI’s New Online Resource for Farmers

2011_RAFI_Matthew_Garret_copy_009Do you have a plan for managing risk on your farm? Did you know that there are incredibly helpful tools and resources available online for helping you learn how to manage the multitude of risks specific to agriculture? The presenters of this workshop have developed a new website for farmers to help them easily access and use these resources.

Join RAFI staff members in discussing crucial farm risk management issues and develop a plan for better addressing risk on your farm. This workshop 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. Small-scale and beginning farmers are particularly encouraged to attend.
