USDA announced it will host more than a dozen in-person and virtual workshops this winter for producers to learn more about new and expanded livestock risk management products.
The “Livestock Roadshow” will be hosted by the Risk Management Agency. It will highlight policy improvements based on feedback from America’s livestock producers as part of the agency’s broader outreach and education efforts.
“Listening to farmers and ranchers is a top priority for RMA,” says administrator Marcia Bunger. “The Livestock Roadshow is one of our many efforts to provide outreach and education to America’s agricultural producers.”
The roadshow will cover many topics, including annual forage, dairy revenue protection, livestock gross margin, livestock risk protection, and many others. To ensure producers across the country can attend an event, two virtual livestock shows are scheduled for January. Livestock producers can learn more by going to usda.gov or contacting a Risk Management Agency Regional Office.
