Workshops available on risk management products

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is hosting more than a dozen in-person and virtual workshops this winter for producers to learn about new and expanded livestock risk management products.

The “Livestock Roadshow,” hosted by USDA’s Risk Management Agency (RMA), will highlight policy improvements based on feedback from America’s livestock producers, part of the agency’s broader outreach and education efforts.

Risk Management Options for Cattle Producers including  Weaned Calf Risk Protection,  Livestock Risk Protection (LRP)  and Pasture, Range, and Forage Insurance (PRF) are on the agenda for this evening in Sturgis, at the Community Center beginning at 6p.m.

The same informational meeting will be held Tuesday, Jan. 16 in Faith at the Faith Community Center at 1p.m.
