Dairy Revenue Protection Topic of Janauary 9th Meetings

Dairy Revenue Protection topic of January 9th Meetings

 The University of Wisconsin – Extension Dunn and St. Croix County offices, Bremer Bank, and Wisconsin Farm Bureau are sponsoring two Winter Dairy Meetings on Wednesday, January 9th.  This seminar is aimed to help dairy farmers analyze their cost of production and provide information on the new Dairy Revenue Protection Program. Please note, Dairy Revenue Protection is a new insurance product being offered (similar to crop insurance), and is not the same as USDA Farm Service Agency’s Dairy Margin Protection Program (Dairy-MPP).

Program topics and speakers include:

  • Cost of Production Analysis: Simon Jette-Nantel, Farm Management Specialist, UW-Extension/UW-River Falls along with host agents
  • The Dairy Revenue Protection Program and Farm Bill Changes to the MPP: Mark Stephenson, Director of Dairy Policy Analysis, UW-Madison Center for Dairy Profitability

 A monring session in Menomonie and an afternoon session in Baldwin are planned.
