1420 Views

CAS' John Mangus recently presented introductory risk management and crop insurance informational workshops to beginning producers in six Indiana locations.  The workshops were conducted December 10 - 13, 2012.

Mangus presented workshops to 325 producers at Eastern Hancock, Southmont, Clinton Central, Northwestern Senior, Sheridan, and McCutcheon High Schools.

Attendees were informed about the availability, operation, and benefits of three specific Federal crop insurance programs, two of which are available to Indiana producers: Livestock Risk Protection (LRP), Wheat, and Adjusted Gross Revenue – Lite (AGR-Lite).

 

To illustrate the challenges of managing risk and the role of Federal crop insurance programs in agricultural risk management, attendees participated in an interactive learning simulation game that showed the uncertainty and inherent risk of operating a simulated Indiana agricultural enterprise.  Students were actively engaged in the presentation and expressed appreciation to CAS and RMA for making the presentation possible.
