Changes to Dairy Margin Protection Program make payments much more likely this spring. ( Farm Journal, Inc. )

Significant changes to the Margin Protection Program for dairy producers were made in the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018. The Farm Service Agency has recently announced new implementation rules to accommodate the changes.

Mark Stephenson and Andrew Novakovic, dairy economists with the University of Wisconsin and Cornell University, respectively, will conduct a webinar Monday, April 9th, at 1 p.m. Eastern, to walk you through these changes and to assess impacts on producers who participate. The webinar will be hosted by Farm Credit East, but will be limited to the first 500 registered attendees.
