2013-2014 RAM Workshops
(Risk Assessed Marketing)

 

 
Without passage of a current Farm Bill, farmers will have the risk of their Farm Service Agency safety net being changed. Likely the Farm Bill will include changes to crop insurance too. The market continues to move, even if the government’s safety net must wait on a new law. The lack of certainty in the commodity programs, expanded bio-fuels and ethanol usage, 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), selling crop insurance covered puts, futures, put and call options, forward contracts, marketing loans, and basis contracts.

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