Approval of the 2018 Farm Bill was good news for American agriculture, providing certainty in federal policy that impacts farmers and rural communities across the nation.
The Farm Bill includes key improvements to dairy policy, particularly through the Dairy Margin Coverage program (formerly MPP) – a top priority for Land O’Lakes, Inc. and the dairy industry during Farm Bill negotiations.
Now, with the Farm Bill signed and implementation of the new programs ahead, Land O’Lakes is working hard to ensure our members have information and updates on the various programs that impact their business. On January 14, we hosted a special member webinar to provide details on changes to Farm Bill dairy programs.
The January 14 Farm Bill briefing was the first in an exclusive series of "Ask the Expert" presentations coming in 2019 to provide dairy members with expert insights on key farm issues.
Stay tuned for additional information on upcoming webinars, intended to provide concise and value-added content for members. In the coming months, members can expect detailed presentations on cost of production and risk management, as well as Class III pricing and feeding strategies.
