The AFSC Podcast – Managing Risk in Alberta’s Cattle Industry
Welcome to another edition of the AFSC Podcast! The goal of this limited podcast series is to provide Alberta producers in-depth information to support decision making on their operation around risk management.
In our second episode we’re talking with Kelly Smith Fraser, chair of Alberta Beef Producers. 2020 has posed unique challenges to the cattle industry in Alberta, with the impact of COVID-19 and corresponding volatile markets and threats of international trade disruptions. Kelly gives some insights into the importance of the Western Livestock Price Insurance Program (WLPIP) and how this producer-driven program can play a key role in managing the risks in your cattle operation.
