ST. CLOUD, Minn. — Dairy Margin Coverage sign-up has started at your local USDA-FSA office for 2021. To educate farmers on their options and costs of the program, representatives from the Farm Service Agency and University of Minnesota Extension have scheduled a webinar on November 5, 2020 from 11:00 AM to noon.
This one-hour webinar will use tools to analyze how Dairy Margin Coverage works. Prices for the different coverage levels and the pounds of coverage will be examined. Dairy Margin Coverage sign-up is open until December 11, 2020 for 2021. Calvin Gellantly, Lisa Campbell, and Angela Hannegraf with USDA-FSA will be speaking, as well as University of Minnesota Extension educator Nathan J Hulinsky.
Pre-registration is not required, and the webinar will be recorded for future viewing. The link to join the webinar is https://z.umn.edu/DMC2021.
“With the current state of milk prices and the farm economy, maintaining profits is tricky,” Hulinsky said. “There are tools out there to help dairy farmers set a floor for their milk price and, we want to highlight them.”
