AG In Uncertain Times webinar: Managing Drought and Disaster Impacts

Droughts and natural disasters have caused widespread effects across the farm economy this past year by increasing price volatility and production risk, as well as increasing financial uncertainty. These risks directly affect farms and ranches impacted by the natural disaster but also producers far removed are affected by reduced input supplies and price increases. A three part webinar series will present issues concerning managing drought and disaster impacts.

The first webinar was November 20 and addressed  livestock issues. Presentations and presenters include:
