2003 - A Workshop Addressing Decision-Making Challenges in a Risky Environment

Volatile crop yields and commodity prices, farm income variability, and the changing legal and political environment provide significant challenges for farm operators and owners, agricultural lenders, and managers of farm related businesses.

The University of Illinois Extension and the Department of Agricultural and Consumer Economics conducted the fourth annual Farm Income workshops in December 2003 to address some of these challenges for the year ahead.
