Subject: Risk Management Survey for Ranchers

    The Livestock Risk Management – Working Group (LRM-WG) is a newly formed organization with a producer approach to improving risk management tools. Through a grass-roots producer effort, this organization will seek to gain a better understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the current Risk Management Agency (RMA) insurance products available for livestock producers.

    Attached you will find a link to a survey designed to help LRM-WG gain a better understanding of producer experiences with risk management products.  Please consider sharing this survey with your members and encouraging them to fill out the survey to the best of your knowledge.  LRM-WG appreciates the value of your time and is committed to utilizing this information to provide you with better risk management tools.  LRM-WG will use the collected information to inform the risk management community and RMA on potential improvements to current programs as well as potential new products to better serve the livestock industry. As you know, maintaining cash flow and economic stability in livestock agriculture is extremely challenging. Having insurance products which aid producers in managing financial risk is a common goal for producers, insurance providers and RMA.

    Please consider sharing this link with members of your organization.  Thank you for your time and willingness to help inform the livestock industry.
