COLUMBIA, Mo. – A series of four lunch-hour lessons from the University of Missouri will give farmers tips on reducing risks, starting March 12.
The programs, presented online, give livestock and forage producers ways to manage their risks, says Joe Horner, MU Extension dairy and beef economist.
“Drought and price volatility increase need to understand risks and to avoid loss,” Horner says.
Topics include adding water to cut drought losses. Lessons also cover insurance for livestock and forage losses.
MU specialists from agricultural engineering and economics will talk and show slides.
The weekly programs run March 12 to April 2, all Wednesdays. They are open to any farmer across the state with a computer and high-speed Internet. Each webinar allows questions to presenters.
Topics and teachers for the four sessions are:
The programs run noon to 1 p.m. (CST).
The Web address and test site to use in advance are listed on Horner’s website at beef.missouri.edu. Click on the “Upcoming Webinars” box.
The programs have no password. Users log on with first and last name. The sites open 15 minutes early. Users are urged to test their lines, computer and speakers in advance.
The programs are free. Two USDA grants support the teaching through MU Extension.
