2018 Winter Dairy Meeting

The University of Wisconsin – Extension, Bremer Bank, and Wisconsin Farm Bureau are sponsoring a Winter Dairy Meeting.  This seminar is aimed to help dairy farmers analyze their cost of production and provide information on the new Dairy Revenue Protection (RP) Program, a new tool with a quarterly payout to dairy farms when milk revenue falls below their insured revenue level. Please note, Dairy Revenue Protection is a new insurance product being offered (similar to crop insurance), and is not the same as USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA)’s Dairy Margin Protection Program (Dairy-MPP).
