Register Now for 2018 Crop Insurance Workshop Scheduled for November 2nd in Enid, Okla.

Wed, 17 Oct 2018 15:34:04 CDT

Register Now for 2018 Crop Insurance Workshop Scheduled for November 2nd in Enid, Okla. The 2018 Crop Insurance Workshop taking place Nov. 2 in Enid will once again offer a “one-stop shopping format” for crop insurance agents; marketing consultants; and agricultural producers, lenders and educators needing to know the latest information.



Trent Milacek, Oklahoma State University Cooperative Extension area agricultural economist, said the goal of the annual workshop is to make it as easy as possible for participants to get the insights they need, from experts in Oklahoma and beyond.



“This year the workshop is titled ‘Successfully Navigating Washington D.C. Waters’ and will focus on everything from government programs to commodity markets,” he said. “This is a fantastic opportunity and easy way to hear firsthand from speakers outside of our state who are experts in their fields.”



Milacek added it is important to not overlook another key workshop aspect: the ability to interact with official speakers and fellow participants.



“Those conversations can be as valuable as the official sessions,” he said.



A four-state collaboration by the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, Colorado State University, Kansas State University and OSU’s Division of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources, the workshop will take place at Enid’s Autry Technology Center, located at 1201 W. Willow Rd.



Those interested in attending the workshop are encouraged to visit http://cropinsure.unl.edu and click on “Workshop Registration” to register. Cost is $100 per participant if registering by Oct. 27 and $120 per participant if registering afterward. Registration also can be completed by mail using a workshop brochure that can be picked up at all OSU Cooperative Extension county offices, typically listed under “County Government” in local directories.



The workshop will begin at 8 a.m. with registration, donuts and coffee. The first presentation will start at 9 a.m. with Congressman Frank Lucas of Oklahoma’s Third Congressional District providing an update of activities going on in Washington D.C. relative to agriculture and the Southern Plains states.



Following Congressman Lucas’s talk will be a farm bill update from Amy Hagerman, OSU Cooperative Extension agricultural and food policy specialist. Risk management specialists Shelly Bilderback and Wylie Rickstraw then will provide insights about the inner workings of whole farm revenue protection.



“After participants enjoy a catered lunch of prime rib, mashed potatoes and green beans, they will hear from Kim Anderson, OSU Cooperative Extension grain marketing specialist, and me,” Milacek said. “We will be providing the latest information relative to grain and livestock market outlooks.”



After the outlook talks, Norm Dalstead, Colorado State University Extension farm and ranch economist, will lead a session about federal monetary policy.



The afternoon program will conclude with Art Barnaby, Kansas State University professor and Extension agricultural economist, whose session will focus on answering a frequently asked question by many producers: Which policy should I buy?



Anyone seeking additional information about the Nov. 2 workshop should contact Milacek by phone at 580-237-7677.



The Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service is one of two state agencies administered by OSU’s Division of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources, and is a key part of the university’s state and federally mandated teaching, research and Extension land-grant mission.
