ENFIELD, Conn. — The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 resulted in significant changes to the Dairy Margin Protection Program (MPP) for producers. USDA’s Farm Service Agency is expected to announce plans soon on how it’s going to implement these changes.
In anticipation of USDA announcing another opportunity for producers to enroll in MPP for 2018, Northeast dairy producers are invited to tune in to a Farm Credit East webinar on Monday, April 9, at 1:00 PM EST. Participation is free.
The webinar will feature Dr. Mark Stephenson, University of Wisconsin-Madison, and Dr. Andrew Novakovic, Cornell University, from the Program on Dairy Markets and Policy (DMAP), who will discuss the changes in the program and the available tools producers can use to evaluate participating in the program when the sign up period reopens.
Dairy producers are invited to join us on Monday, April 9, from 1:00 to 2:00 PM EST, to learn more about these changes to the Dairy MPP. This webinar is free to participate. Visit FarmCreditEast.com/webinars for registration information.
