Take part in the Resiliency in Colorado Agriculture Research Study…CSU Extension Needs Your Help!

Dear Colorado Farmer/Rancher,

My name is Brent Young and I am a researcher from Colorado State University Extension. We are conducting a research study to determine the financial management needs of farmers and ranchers in Colorado. The title of our project is Resiliency in Colorado Agriculture. The Principal Investigator is Brent Young.

We would like you to take an anonymous online survey. Participation will take approximately 5 to 10 minutes. Your participation in this research is voluntary. If you decide to participate in the study, you may withdraw your consent and stop participation at any time without penalty.

We will not collect your name or personal identifiers. When we report and share the data to others, we will combine the data from all participants.  While there are no direct benefits to you, we hope to gain more knowledge on your financial management needs and to use this information to apply for future funding opportunities.

There are no known risks associated with participating in this study, It is not possible to identify all potential risks in research procedures, but the researcher has taken reasonable safeguards to minimize any known and potential (but unknown) risks.
