Presenters: Ron Robbins, Owner, North Harbor Dairy, Sackets Harbor, NY and Ed Gallagher, President, DFA Risk Management
Robbins has used many tools to manage milk price risks on his dairy over the years, including those from FSA and RMA, and he has also bought contracts on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. During the webinar he will share his experiences and which tools he uses now for his farm’s milk protection. Gallagher will review RMA’s new “Dairy Revenue Protection” policy. This is a new policy developed with American Farm Bureau. It is similar to crop insurance offered for field crops, which has helped that industry manage risks for a number of years.
Fay Benson, who works with Cornell University Crop Insurance and Risk Management and Education Program, will host the webinar and share where more information can be found about the Dairy Revenue Protection Policy.

If you are looking to get a sense of what silage hybrids performed well this year before your seed order for 2019, join us for this webinar. Joe Lawrence will share the results of the 2018 hybrid trials. The corn silage hybrid evaluation program included 77 hybrids from 17 companies in 2018. With this number of hybrids evaluated at multiple locations across New York and Vermont, the resulting information provides a useful decision making tool for farmers.
