This is a two-part webinar series, and by registering you will be registered for both webinars; you can choose to attend both or just one. The intent is to help livestock (pork and beef) farmers learn about price risk management methods available to them.

The first webinar on Wednesday, June 9 at 1:00 pm will feature Livestock Risk Protection insurance to illustrate how LRP works with different species. You will get the details of how to sign up, examples of premium and how to use LRP in your pork or beef operation of any size. LRP has been improved in the past year, and this webinar will highlight the improvements in premium and timing of payment.

The second webinar on Wednesday, June 16 at 1:00 pm will feature Producers Livestock Marketing Association's specialized programs for pork and beef producers. This will be an overview of the distinctive risk management programs PLMA offers for both species. These programs are unique in the market and really help operations of all sizes, including small to medium sized livestock farms.
