Five virtual sessions are being offered, each tailored to the unique challenges operations may face.

Virtual Session 1

Crop Producers – South – March 2 – 6:30-8 p.m.
Considering risk management options for your operation can be complex even in a typical year. Throw in drought, market fluctuations, or a global pandemic and it can be downright confusing. In this session, we will discuss how AgriStability can work in concert with crop insurance or private insurance options, with a focus on the unique conditions faced while operating in southern Alberta.

Virtual Session 2

Intensive Livestock Feeding Operations / Custom Feeding – March 4 – 6:30-8 p.m.

Virtual Session 3

Diversified Farms / Colonies – March 9 – 6:30 – 8 p.m.
Join program experts from AFSC and MNP for a look at risk management and how to use these tools to safeguard the stability and long-term health of your operation.

Virtual Session 4

Crop Producers – North – March 10 – 6:30 – 8 p.m.
Considering risk management options for your operation can be complex even in a typical year. Throw in unharvested acres, market fluctuations or a global pandemic and it can be downright confusing.
