CAS’ Ryan Mangus presented introductory risk management and crop insurance informational workshops to beginning producers participating in the recent Alaska FFA State Convention held in Anchorage April 22-23, 2015.
Mangus covered a range of risk management and crop insurance topics during the two workshops. Many of the participants came from homestead operations across Alaska and were very familiar with agricultural risks. Discussion of risk management strategies such as futures contracts and the use of crop insurance were well received.
CAS thanks the Alaska FFA Association for their efforts and help to coordinate the events.
