Feature Article – Revisiting the MPP
Our feature article, “Revisiting MPP” explores coverage that the program offers in light of where current margins may exist for a sample dairy operation. As the program is new and individual dairies are still in the process of trying to understand how it protects their unique margins, we examine where gaps may exist and discuss considerations that a dairy may want to think about as they evaluate their existing coverage. This may also impact how a dairy views coverage decisions for the upcoming year as enrollment for 2016 begins in July.

Margin Watch Review
Get the latest outlook for profitability in the crop, swine, cattle and dairy industries. While margins have remained relatively stagnant over the previous month, the improvement in dairy margins has been noticeable. Hopefully, we will begin to see margin improvement in other sectors also as we thaw out from winter and move into the spring season.
