November 5, 12pm–1pmWhat
Organizers from The Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences in partnership with the Ohio Dairy Producer’s Association are hosting a free three-part webinar series Nov. 5, 17 and 24 from noon to 1:00 p.m.
Each session will be no longer than one hour and include two speakers with options for discussion at the end. These webinars are scheduled to assist dairy producers to make informed decisions about enrolling in the federal safety net program prior to the mid-December deadline as well as explore other available price risk management tools.
The series will start on Thursday Nov. 5, with a presentation by Mark Stephenson, director of Dairy Markets and Policy at the University of Wisconsin, on how milk is priced in the United States and a discussion about factors that led to this years’ unprecedented negative PPDs and volatile milk prices.
Session two, covering domestic and international dairy supply and demand outlooks on Nov. 17, 2020, will be presented by William Loux, director of Global Trade Analysis at the U.S. Dairy Export Council and Mike McCully, owner and CEO of The McCully Group.
Concluding the series is the overview of risk management tools including DMC, futures and options, Livestock Gross Margin Coverage, and Dairy Revenue Protection. OSU Extension Educators Chris Zoller- Tuscarawas County and Jason Hartshuh- Crawford County will be joined by Dr. Kenny Burdine, livestock Extension economist at the University of Kentucky, for the final session on Nov. 24.
The webinar series is free and open to the public. The virtual nature of the webinars allows flexibility in attendance, but the sessions also will be recorded and posted online.
