Risk Ranch is the first and most exciting agriculture-based learning application for children of all ages. Fun and fast-paced, this single-player game engages kids with real-life content, challenging players to take on the role of a modern day farmer and bring a steer to market. The app is based on an interactive board game developed by CME Group and National 4-H to teach youth
the importance of agricultural economics and risk management.
On a plinko style board, players must avoid “risks” by physically tilting their mobile devices – navigating around red pegs that
represent real risks relevant to a farmer: food prices, harsh weather or increasing gas prices. As players progress through the game, they’ll have a chance to experience all four seasons while learning about risks that affect the overall profit of the steer. Children must make strategic decisions in order to win the blue ribbon at the end!
Risk Ranch is designed to help children look at agriculture as a business, whether they aspire to be a farmer in the future or just have an interest in where their food comes from. They may be surprised just how fun the economics of agriculture can be.

- Experience all four seasons of raising an animal
- Understand the real-life risks that a farmer faces daily
