Description

Precipitation can be highly variable in Nebraska. This creates uncertainty in forage production on our perennial pastures and non-irrigated croplands. The USDA Risk Management Agency provides precipitation risk management tools in the form of Pasture, Rangeland, Forage (PRF) insurance and the Annual Forage Insurance Program to help combat this issue. This presentation will help you better understand the features of these programs and investigate how to include them in risk management plans for your farm or ranch. We will discuss specific examples, historical results, and implementation strategies that help you meet your risk management goals.
