The Center for Dairy Excellence (CDE) will host a “Protecting Your Profits” conference call on Wednesday, April 23, 12-12:15 p.m. Alan Zepp, CDE risk management program manager, will provide a market update and include Livestock Gross Margin for Dairy (LGM-Dairy) results and opportunities.

This month Zepp will ask and answer, "Can I still protect profitable margins for next winter?" He will address basics of the Farm Bill’s Dairy Margin Protection Program and other price risk management tools.
