Crop Insurance & Farm Programs Workshop – February 20th

The UW-Madison, Division of Extension offices in Marinette and Oconto Counties are sponsoring a workshop designed to help crop producers better understand crop insurance and how their USDA Farm Bill crop program decision can interact with their crop insurance decisions.  The event is being held at the Pound Town Hall (W8484 Cty. Hwy. B, east edge of the Village of Coleman) on Thursday, February 20th, starting at 1 p.m. and concluding by 3:30 p.m.

There will be three key topics on the workshop docket.  First, an overview of crop insurance policy types, premium likelihood, and related opportunities.  Second, an overview of the Farm Bill Crop Program decision-making process regarding ARC/PLC.  Lastly, how your crop insurance and Farm Bill decisions may directly or indirectly work together as part of an overall risk management plan.  The discussions will be facilitated by Scott Reuss, Extension Crops/Soils Agent for Marinette & Oconto Counties.
