April and May weather sets the tone for each growing season. By using the latest weather analysis and forecasting tools, you can maximize your dairy’s efficiency and create plans based on sound strategies. In addition to the winter and early spring weather conditions, other national weather events such as drought, temperature anomalies and various precipitation patterns will affect the start of the 2020 growing season.
In this webinar, Eric Snodgrass will analyze how the weather has impacted markets during the growing season. He’ll provide the latest long-range forecasts through the end of the growing season and show you how to forecast excessive heat, rain and drought – factors that have a huge impact on your input costs. Being ready for weather events that negatively impact yields, herd health and milk production gives you an opportunity to prepare.
