Project Overview

This project addressed client education related to the 2014 Farm Bill.  The delivery method utilized a hands-on workshop for agricultural producers, farmland owners, investors, estate managers, industry, professional, government, and educational clientele in the State of Nebraska.  The goal of the project was 40 programs with an average attendance of 30 participants per meeting.  The delivery team was comprised of six University of Nebraska Extension Education professionals located around the state.  The goal of the educational program was a technical understanding of the farm bill legislation and a functional operational analysis capacity to make decisions relative to the risk management of their specific operations and/or investments.  The project sought to equip the operator with the analytical tools necessary to make a sound farm bill program election at the time of sign-up with a working understanding of how guarantees were calculated and how payments were determined.  Effectively, the team expected to reach approx. 1200 operators in the workshop meetings.  In total, the program presented 134 programs across the state, reaching 13,328 total participants in the reporting period.

Number of Participants: 13328
