On Friday, June 14, join us for “Tools and Perspectives to Navigate the Cattle Market’s Ups and Downs” at 8:30 a.m. CDT.

Even in a challenging cattle market, producers have tools to manage risk. We’ll discuss livestock insurance, plus market developments that cow-calf producers need to know.

To start, we’ll review Livestock Risk Protection policies, which offer new ways for cattlemen to manage operational risk. Cody Dvorak, Rabo AgInsurance services manager, explains how these policies can help protect your bottom line in turbulent times.

In part two, Managing the Cattle Market’s Long-Term Bullishness Amid Bearish Surprises, DTN Livestock Analyst ShayLe Stewart will deliver an in-depth look at the market’s current state and share the opportunities and risks that may lay ahead for cow-calf producers.
