Program summary, evaluation, and analysis report for Nebraska Farm Bill Education. Funding provided by North Central Risk Management Center Grant #RME-MZ804461.


The 2014 Farm Bill presented agricultural producers with new options in farm risk management that was very different than previous years. This publication documents the evaluation and analysis conducted through a Nebraska Extension and Farm Service Agency educational effort reaching 13,328 producers, in 112 workshop meetings across the State of Nebraska. The evaluative effort included a post-workshop survey instrument and a six-month post event survey tool, showing the demographic breakdown of the workshop clientele, short- and medium-term knowledge/behavioral impacts, and the financial value of the program overall.
