No 21694, 1999 Annual meeting, August 8-11, Nashville, TN from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: Risk management strategies were compared using a corn/soybean farm, a hog farm, and a diversified hog/crop farm. Results suggest risk management tools are more effective in combinations, hog/crop diversification shows limited risk reducing benefits, and the effects of choosing among risk management tools may be overemphasized.
