Managing a farm and agribusiness against financial risk will be the topic for upcoming Ohio Farm Bureau Financial Essentials workshops scheduled in September.
The financial risk management sessions will help build a better understanding of risks, teach strategies and solutions to mitigate risks, provide a basic understanding of insurance options available to protect an operation, help identify opportunities that can help grow the operation and how to be better prepared to manage a business for the future.
This session was developed for beginning, new or evolving operations (seed, fertilizer, vertically integrated) and is designed to help mitigate the stress that comes from important questions regarding family, farm and business financial issues. The resources provided will help guide the path to financial security.
Sponsoring organizations are Ohio Farm Bureau, Nationwide, Farm Credit Mid-America, Wright & Moore Law, numerous county Farm Bureaus and others. The sessions are free for Farm Bureau members and cost $10 for nonmembers. A meal is included.
Workshop information is listed below. Registration and more information is available at ofbf.org/financial-essentials or by calling the numbers listed.
