Eden Prairie, Minn. (Sept. 22, 2014) – The upcoming Hoard’s Dairyman monthly webinar in October titled “Margin Protection – What’s Right for You?” will be held on Monday, October 13 (12 p.m. – 1 p.m. CST), and features Dr. John Newton from the University of Illinois.
In the webinar, sponsored by Zinpro Corporation, Dr. Newton will present information on the new USDA-sponsored Margin Protection Program – Dairy (MPP-Dairy). He will explain how it may help dairy operators manage margin risk, review key sign-up and enrollment dates, and will engage participants with demonstrations using the USDA-sponsored MPP-Dairy decision tool.
The University of Illinois developed a dashboard calculator that allows a dairy producer to enter in personalized farm inputs to calculate which level of protection will best suit the dairy.
