Identifying and Managing Farming Production Risk

The Central Valley Risk Management Project, in cooperation with the Kern County Farm Bureau, would like to invite you to attend a free risk management workshop on June 7, 2017.

Title:  Identifying and Managing Farming Production Risk

Description:  This workshop will help farmers identify, evaluate and manage production risks.  Production risk includes anything that directly affects the quantity and quality of your production. Farmers deal with a significant amount of uncertainty every day from not knowing what the weather will be like this year to wondering if the market prices will increase or decrease tomorrow. Agricultural producers are forced to make decision on imperfect information. Our experts will assist farmers in reducing their production risk by helping them understand the principals behind production costs, financial benchmarking, contract product, and assets management that includes leasing and renting.

When & Where:  9:00 - 11:00 am | Kern County Farm Bureau, 801 S Mt Vernon Ave, Bakersfield, CA

Fee:  There is no fee to attend this event.

Audience: Farmers, Ranchers and Agribusiness Community Registration


Registration closes on June 6, 2017. Space is limited so please register early for this event.  This workshop is funded in part by the USDA Risk Management Agency
