With USDA’s enrollment deadline extended until Dec. 19, dairy farmers have another two weeks to decide whether they will participate in the Margin Protection Program for Dairy (MPP-Dairy).

To help them decide, Cameron Thraen, Ohio State University,  and Christopher Wolf, Michigan State University, have recently authored a new MPP Decision Guide, designed to help evaluate the new program as a financial risk management tool.

Access the MPP Decision Guide and related information is available on the Dairy Markets and Policy (DMaP) MPP-Dairy web site.
