Nebraska Extension’s efforts to assist farmers and ranchers to achieve profitable outcomes continue with a series of workshops that will offer strategies and tools to reduce risk exposure associated with cattle production.

In June and July, Extension specialists and educators will conduct “Managing Cattle for Profit in 2021” in Thedford, North Platte, Alliance, Norfolk and Ainsworth. 

Each workshop will offer information on current issues and opportunities in the cattle industry; trends in grazing land cash rental rates, including current cash rental rates and designing flex leases; and managing price risk with futures, options and insurance. 

The sessions are free and include a complementary meal. Registration is required a day prior to each workshop at or by calling the local contact for each session.
