Colorado USDA Beginning Farmer Rancher (BFR) Webinar Series

USDA is an “Every Day, Every Way” department that touches the lives of every American, every day by supporting the agriculture sector, strengthening rural communities, promoting healthy eating, and helping to protect our natural resources. At the forefront of our mission is the support we provide to farmers to help them start—and continue—farming. If you have been wondering where to start at USDA, this is the place for you. The Colorado Farm Service Agency (FSA), Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), Rural Development (RD), and Risk Management Agency (RMA) have collaborated to create a webinar for our producers to go over general program basics for each agency and the resources available to them.

Each month will be a different topic and producers will have to register for each event individually. Below are the Presentations from previous months as well as the registration links for future months:
