RightRisk, LLC coaches agricultural firms helping them solve problems and make changes necessary to reach their goals. We work with business owners and managers when operations are running smoothly, when there is a perceived problem, and when a major change in operations or resource base is being considered.
Because we are intimately involved in agriculture, we know the industry and the opportunities and struggles of individual farms and ranches. Furthermore, we understand the interconnectedness of farm and ranch families with the business.
RightRisk, LLC will put together the best team of our people to work with your firm. After an initial assessment, we are able to draw upon the skills and experiences of our ten members and numerous sub-contractors to provide a plethora of services needed to meet the diverse needs of your business and family.

RightRisk, LLC coaches clients in all five categories of risk – financial, marketing, production, legal, and human.
Financial Risk has three basic components: (1) cost and availability of debt capital, (2) ability to meet cash-flow needs in a timely manner, and (3) ability to maintain and grow equity. A set of well-maintained financial records are critical to evaluating past performance and planning for future accomplishments. We can help you
Marketing Risk concerns the sale of commodities, direct sales, establishing and maintaining niche markets, promoting new products, and soliciting new clients. We can help you
Production Risk implies and expected outcome or yield. Major sources of production risks are weather, pests, diseases, the interaction of technology with other farm and management characteristics, genetics, machinery efficiency, and the quality of inputs. We can help you
Legal Risks cut across other risk areas and are most commonly associated with agriculture under four broad categories: (1) appropriate legal business structure and tax and estate planning, (2) contractual arrangements, (3) tort liability, and (4) statutory and environmental compliance. Although we do NOT provide legal counsel, we have the experience and skills to help you
Human Resource Risks includes the management of employees, communicating with family members and business partners, providing protection to the business if the manager becomes unavailable to make decisions, working with input suppliers and buyers, and all other people directly and in-directly with your business.
