This poster presents the results of a simulation analysis designed to show the financial risks that beginning women farmers face. Beginning women farmers may have borrow a larger percentage of their operating capital than more established farmers. This puts them at financial risk due to production risks. Should these beginning women farmers have a "bad" year, they may not have adequate capital reserves to meet their needs. This poster presents the results of several strategies that these producers might try should they have a "bad" year.
