Dairy Margin Coverage sign-up has started at your local USDA-FSA office for 2021.

To educate farmers on their options and costs of the program, representatives from the Farm Service Agency and University of Minnesota Extension have scheduled a webinar from 11 a.m. to noon. on Nov. 5.

This one-hour webinar will use tools to analyze how Dairy Margin Coverage works. Prices for the different coverage levels and the pounds of coverage will be examined. Dairy Margin Coverage sign-up is open until Dec. 11, 2020 for 2021.  Calvin Gellantly, Lisa Campbell  and Angela Hannegraf with USDA-FSA will be speaking, as well as University of Minnesota Extension educator Nathan J. Hulinsky.
