Crop Insurance Workshops to address drought, politics and risk management strategies


Agricultural producers are not lacking for topics to discuss or challenges to manage, and the 2012 Crop Insurance Workshops, to be held at sites in Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado and Oklahoma, will touch on several.

The workshops are hosted by K-State Research and Extension, Oklahoma State Extension, Colorado State University and University of Nebraska Extension. Application for insurance continuing education credits has been made for the host states as well as several other states.

This year's workshops, titled "Drought, Politics and Risk Management Strategies" will be held at:

Oct. 30--Brush, Colo., Event Center, Brush Fairgrounds;

Oct. 31--Grand Island, Neb., College Park, 3180 W. Highway 24;

Nov. 1--Salina, Kan., Salina Ramada Inn, 1616 W. Crawford; and

Nov. 2--Enid, Okla., Autry Technology Center, 1201 W. Willow.

The one-day workshop is designed to provide crop insurance agents, agricultural lenders, marketing consultants, agricultural educators and other risk management service providers with tools to help their clients make more profitable risk management decisions. Farmers and ranchers can apply the information directly to their own management decisions.

Presentations will include:

--Macro Outlook and Implications for Agriculture;

--Policy Outlook: A New Farm Bill for a New Era?;

--Grain Market Outlook for 2012-2013;

--Risk Management Agency Update;

--Common Land Unit Acreage Reporting Plan;

--Land Values/Rents; and

--Drought, Politics and Risk Management Policy.

The cost to attend, which includes lunch, is $90 if paid more than five days ahead of a specific workshop. After that date and at the door the fee is $100.
