Conference Name Empowering Producers to Manage Risks Across the Southern Region

Erica Barnes Fields, Emily Davis, and Dr. Ron Rainey

Summary

Since the Extension Risk Management Education (ERME) program began, the Southern Center has funded 286 farmer trainings addressing 31 major risk management topics 1,165 times across the 13 states and 2 territories throughout the Southern region. These impactful farmer and rancher trainings were specifically designed to address the risk management education needs of Southern producers. Across ERME’s five main risk—production marketing, financial, legal and human—areas, funded projects seek to empower producers to manage the risks faced daily on their farms and ranches. The ERME program has aspirational goals in these five main areas that ultimately enhance profitability by successfully managing agricultural risks. This poster examines projects in the Southern region by risk category and aspirational goals.
