 Presenter: Dr. Art Barnaby
The RAM workshop is a timely education program that will provide farmers with new ideas and risk skills to survive this market downturn.  In addition to low commodity prices, the lack of convergences in the futures contracts will impact the results from short hedges-forward contracts and crop revenue insurance that pays based on a zero basis.  Storage is one method for dealing with the lack of convergence in the futures market, but that will open a new set of risks.

This workshop utilizes a case study, with participants managing a typical grain farm.  Participants working the case problem will improve their understanding of the different marketing strategies, crop insurance coverage levels and how to make the best use of the “free” protection in the FSA commodity program.
