WINDING DOWN 2020: The pandemic affected dairy in many ways this year, from damaging demand to roiling markets. Two upcoming webinars will help dairy farmers get ready for 2021.
The webinars will be held Dec. 1 and Dec. 3, both at noon.

COVID-19’s global impact on foodservice markets has caused dramatic price swings in dairy markets.

To help producers prepare for the year ahead, Crop Growers LLP, Farm Credit East, Yankee Farm Credit and AgChoice Farm Credit are putting on two webinars to analyze 2020’s impact on dairy markets, look at current and future dairy markets, and discuss risk management strategies.

Dairy producers as well as service providers who support them are invited to join Farm Credit East and Yankee Farm Credit on Dec. 1 at noon, or join AgChoice Farm Credit on Dec. 3 at noon.

Both webinars will cover similar information and are free to attend. Visit to register.

Marin Bozic of the University of Minnesota along with Farm Credit East business consultant Gregg McConnell and AgChoice Farm Credit business consultant Mike Hosterman will present these webinars. Each session will begin with a discussion of the post-election market impact, the year ahead and decision support tools to assist dairy producers.

Farm Credit business consultants will also share insights to prepare for the new year, and the session will conclude with questions and answers.

While there are many unknowns heading into 2021, there is sure to be volatility.
