LYONS, NEBRASKA – Farmers and ranchers are invited to attend three webinars on crop insurance in early January.

The webinars are free to attend, hosted by the Center for Rural Affairs.

“These sessions are for beginning and any other farmers and ranchers who may be unfamiliar with how crop insurance works and whether it is applicable for their operations,” said Anna Johnson, policy manager with the Center for Rural Affairs.

Each webinar is from noon to 1:30 p.m. central. Topics include:

  • Jan. 8, Crop insurance for beginners;
  • Jan. 10, Flexible crop insurance option: Whole Farm Revenue Protection; and
  • Jan. 11, Insurance options for livestock.

“Many farmers and ranchers grow or raise crops and livestock that are not covered by traditional policies,” Johnson said. “This webinar series is designed to provide information on insurance options that are not as well known.”

The webinar on Jan. 10 will address the insurance product Whole Farm Revenue Protection, which covers an operation’s revenue.

“If you grow or raise organic, value-added, specialty crop, or are interested in new markets, Whole Farm Revenue Protection might be right for you,” Johnson said. “Sign up for our webinar on Jan. 10 to learn more.”
