Inside the 2018 Margin Protection Program

April 13, 2018

Farm Credit East Sponsor of MPP Webinar

The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 resulted in significant changes to the Dairy Margin Protection Program (MPP) for producers. USDA’s Farm Service Agency is expected to announce plans soon on how it’s going to implement these changes.

In anticipation of USDA announcing another opportunity for producers to enroll in MPP for 2018, Northeast dairy producers were invited to tune in to a Farm Credit East webinar on April 09, 2018.

The webinar featured Dr. Mark Stephenson, University of Wisconsin-Madison, and Dr. Andrew Novakovic, Cornell University, from the Program on Dairy Markets and Policy (DMAP), who discussed the changes in the program and the available tools producers can use to evaluate participating in the program. 

To learn more about these changes to the Dairy MPP, view the webinar recording.
