Conference call, Nov. 20, means to protect profits

HARRISBURG, Pa. -- The Center for Dairy Excellence will host a “Protecting Your Profits” conference call on Wednesday, November 20, from 12 – 12:15 p.m. to provide a quick update of the dairy markets and margins. Alan Zepp, risk management program Manager for the center, who authors the Markets and Management Update, published in Farmshine, will host the call.

During his call, Zepp will explain the global and domestic issues that could influence prices for dairy and other commodities in the next ten months. He will also discuss current dairy production trends and how Pennsylvania’s dairy region is trending in milk production. The call will include a brief review of risk management opportunities available and an update on the status of LGM for Dairy.
