The I-29 Moo University will host a webinar to review USDA’s Dairy Revenue Protection and Dairy Margin Coverage programs at noon May 17. Presenters for the webinar will include:
- Marin Bozic, assistant professor in economics at the University of Minnesota.
- Josh Newton, crop insurance team leader with Compeer Financial.
- Cassandra Monger, dairy industry specialist with Compeer Financial.
Bozic will outline developments in the Dairy Revenue Protection program and how dairy producers are benefitting from it, as well as provide forecasts for the next year.
Newton and Monger will focus on the Dairy Revenue Protection program from a lender’s perspective, including results from the first quarter in 2019. They will discuss how the Dairy Revenue Protection program is set up to serve each dairy producer operation, how it fits into a producer’s overall risk management plan, and execution of the program from application to endorsement.
