Welcome to the Center
The Western Center for Risk Management Education is one of five USDA NIFA Extension Risk Management Education Centers. Partnering with state university Extension educators and public and private sector partners in the west, the Center provids tools and training to support producers in establishing long-term risk management strategies that will strengthen the economic viability of their farm and ranch enterprises.
Our Mission: Educating America’s farmers and ranchers to manage the unique risks of producing food for the world’s table.
The Western Center is housed within the Washington State University College of Agricultural, Human, and Natural Resource Sciences Extension School of Economic Sciences.
Risk management results or outcomes help farm and ranch families to improve their economic viability through targeted risk management education and are the sole purpose of the Extension Risk Management Education (ERME) Grants Program. Learn more »
