Will today's farm supports mean issues down the road? How could the coronavirus issue offer opportunity for farmers and ranchers? What's up with dairy prices? And how are consumer tastes changing?

This episode of Around Farm Progress digs into a tough topic – farm policy and support for agriculture during coronavirus. Guest editor Jacqui Fatka, policy editor for Feedstuffs and Farm Futures, offers insight on a range of topics farmers will want to check out.

Then we dig into the dairy industry, where a price spike is good news, but for how long? Fran O'Leary from Wisconsin Agriculturist covers the dairy industry and offers some perspective. She also has a look at how coronavirus is changing consumer eating habits.
