This project provided forage and livestock producers in the Southeastern U.S. the knowledge needed to analyze the risk management advantages of the Pasture, Rangeland, and Forage (PRF) insurance program. This program provides insurance protection for perennial forages produced for grazing or harvested for hay and is administered by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Risk Management Agency (RMA). Perennial forage production is a primary source of grazing and hay for livestock producers in the Southeastern U.S. These producers have historically been underserved in terms of risk management strategies which has left them unprotected in past droughts. We provided in-person training to 445 producers in Alabama and Mississippi and educated producers on the effectiveness of PRF as a risk management tool and provided guidance on enrollment.
