The "Webinars" begin this Monday January 23. Local Food System and Small Farms Coordinator with the University of Illinois Extension offices of DeWitt, Macon and Piatt Counties Paul Meriman explains the webinars will focus on risk management for small farms.

Meriman says while the classes are focused towards small farms, he feels the material will be pertinent towards anyone in business as the material will be a lot of focus towards preparing for things that are unexpected on an operation.
