Working with new partner Farmer Veteran Coalition (FVC), CAS helped coordinate and then deliver training to New England beginning producers. CAS' Ryan Mangus and John Mangus each delivered presentations at seven different locations in New York and New Hampshire, with a total of 232 beginning producers in attendance.
CAS presenters utilized the "Farming is Risky Business" program in all 7 locations. The presentation is designed to introduce beginning producers to risk and risk mangement tools commonly used by today's agriculutural producers to manage ag risk (ie. crop insurance). Training focused on risk management and crop insurance fundamentals, with an emphasis on RMA’s Nursery and WFRP Programs.
CAS appreciates the opportunity to work with the FVC to educate New England beginning producers.
