The hall is located approximately 2 miles north of West, just off Exit 355 – County Line East, on Jerry Mashek Dr.
Dr. Johnson will present information related to how producers can utilize the Extension decision aid to make farm bill management choices. The meeting will explain general farm program provisions, covering the producer’s selection of the Price Loss Coverage or Agricultural Risk Coverage. the presentation will also cover any base and yield update options available and the data needed to complete the decision-making process.
All of these details can be aggregated in a decision aid tool which is available for free to agricultural producers and will be showcased at the program. The decision aid simplifies the analysis needed to choose between the PLC and ARC coverages, as well as providing insight into complementary crop insurance alternatives.
