2013 RAM Workshops
(Risk Assessed Marketing)

 

Changes in farm legislation, including the SURE and ACRE programs, expanded bio-fuels and ethanol, combined with volatile crop prices have caused many producers need to consider different methods for managing yield and price risk.

This workshop will introduce producers to an integrated marketing/production management approach that combines government programs, crop insurance and alternative marketing techniques. Among the topics addressed in this workshop are: Crop Insurance (YP, RP, RP-HPE), SURE and ACRE programs, futures, put and call options, forward contracts, marketing loans, and basis contracts.

INSTRUCTORS: Dr. G.A. (Art) Barnaby and Dr. Daniel O'Brien.
