  • Deciding 2016 Margin Protection Program Coverage for Your Farm

Mark Stephenson, Director of Dairy Policy Analysis at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, joined Farm Credit East for this webinar which took a look at milk and feed markets in the year ahead, provided information to help producers determine financial stress on the farm and demonstrate new farm stress-test features of the online MPP Decision Tool.
