Nebraska Farmers, Ranchers Urged to Consider Forage Insurance

October 15, 2013

University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension educators are encouraging farmers and ranchers to consider pasture, rangeland and forage insurance for next year if they’ve lost forage production because of drought.

The deadline to apply for the coverage is Nov. 15.

Extension educator Monte Vandeveer says producers can insure their land for either grazing or for haying.
