This project addressed two broad areas of risk management education: managing volatility in input costs and managing production risk associated with drought and fires. The dairy industry in Utah is
composed primarily of small and mid-sized producers. Their two main input cost, alfalfa hay and
feed grain, have increased substantially and become more volatile. Three workshops were held, two in northern Utah and one at the Utah Dairy Producers annual convention; producers participated (where possible) in interactive learning exercises designed to enhance their ability
to manage their milk revenue-feed cost margin. Drought and fires have impacted Utah cow-calf producers in the last few years. An interactive workshop was held for a group of central Utah’s Cattlemen to provide education on insurance options (PRF and NAP) and show how alternative cow-calf, yearling stocker enterprise combinations can provide greater flexibility in managing for drought or fire.
