Texas Cooperative Extension (TCE) is partnering with USDA's Risk Management Agency (RMA) and the National Cattlemen's Beef Association to offer two, one-day Livestock Risk Management Workshops aimed at assisting cattlemen with their risk management skills. The workshops will provide cattlemen an overview of RMA-approved risk management tools available through local crop insurance agents, as well as other TCE risk management programs.
Presenters will cover pasture, rangeland and forage insurance; livestock risk protection for feeder and fed cattle; livestock gross margin; and the current market situation and outlook.
Workshops are Oct. 22 at the Texas A&M University Research and Extension Center near Vernon, and Nov. 7 in San Angelo at the Management, Instruction and Research Center of Angelo State University. Both begin at 9 a.m. and end at 3:30 p.m.
There is no registration fee but registration is required. For the Vernon workshop, contact Stan Bevers at s-Bevers@tamu.edu, or Janet Case at firstname.lastname@example.org. To register for the San Angelo workshop, contact Bill Thompson at email@example.com.
