Farm/ranch financial stress is increasing and Extension needs to be prepared to assist producers in honing their financial management skills. We are developing a new series of short video presentations and webinars on agricultural financial management topics (and a few production topics). As OCES has entered into an Outreach Education Cooperative Agreement with the Farm Service Agency (FSA), some segments will highlight information to enhance the awareness of various FSA programs and also deliver educational training regarding production and financial management topics that mesh with FSA programming. A virtual course will also provide an opportunity for completion of FSA Borrower training for producers needing this. Each video/webinar will have a different topic discussed by extension specialists or other professionals (including FSA staff) recognized for their expertise in the subject area. We hope that you will join us to learn more about this project and discuss how you might use it with your producers.
