    Name: 2019 Managing the Ag Margin Workshop and Webinar
    Date: April 5, 2019
    Time: 12:30 PM - 5:00 PM CDT
    Event Description:
    The emergence of agricultural insurance products and complex grain marketing contracts has complicated farm risk management decisions. With greater choices available, producers need to know how much risk can be reduced with each risk management product in order to choose a risk management portfolio that optimizes return relative to risk. The SDSU extension speakers will explain how producers can quantity and monitor whole farm portfolio value-at-risk (VaR) while adopting various marketing strategies, including new generation marketing contracts and insurance products. The producers will be able to monitor changes to risk in real-time using the web-based SDSU Ag VaR Web tool. The webinar will highlight topics and tools covered in the workshop.
