Annual Meeting Speaker Preview: William Murphy

Posted on December 21, 2011

South Dakota is privileged to have the head of the U.S. Risk Management Agency here as a headline speaker for the Corn Growers’ annual meeting.

Administrator William Murphy, who has spent more than 30 years with RMA, will share his insight into crop insurance, Actual Production History policies and the Prairie Pothole Region.

Members of the audience will be among the first in the nation to hear directly from the administrator himself about the recent re-rating of crop insurance.

Murphy also will discuss new technology and how that helps accurately track crop insurance losses. He’ll talk about trend adjusted yields, corn test weight charting, policy compliance and enforcement, and he’ll touch on the writing of a new farm bill.

Murphy said he’ll set aside time to answer questions that people have about RMA programs and policy changes.

The Pennsylvania native was appointed administrator by Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack in 2009.
