Pennsylvania's Center for Dairy Excellence will host the next “Protecting Your Profits” conference call on Wednesday, March 25, 12 p.m. (Eastern). Alan Zepp, risk management program manager, will review current dairy markets and margins.

Zepp will provide a snapshot of today's dairy fundamentals and point out some possible price opportunities. In spite of the recent milk price tumble, expected margins for the second half of 2015 are still $1.00 above the most recent three-year average of actual margins.  Production is climbing while exports are falling; however, next fall's futures markets are $2.00 higher than today.
