Livestock Gross Margin Insurance Program for Dairy Webinar

The funding limitation imposed on the Livestock Gross Margin for Dairy Cattle (LGM-Dairy) insurance program was eliminated via last month’s Federal budget agreement. In addition, dairy farm operators are now able to opt out of USDA’s Margin Protection Program for the remainder of the calendar year. Based on these two events, there has been a significant increase in producer interest in the LGM-Dairy program.

On March 28th from 9:30 – 11:00 am (CST) we will be conducting a webinar providing a review of program participation and structure.

9:30 – 10:30 Professor Brian Gould, University of Wisconsin-Extension
(i) The Fundamentals of USDA’s LGM-Dairy Program
(ii) An Overview of the University of Wisconsin LGM-Dairy Analyzer Software System

10:30 – 11:00 am  Mr. Ron Mortensen of Dairy Gross Margin, LLC

(i) Nuts & Bolts of Preparing for a Monthly Contract Offering
(ii) Mechanics of Submitting an Insurance Application
(iii) Common Insurance Contract Designs.

A Q&A will be conducted at the conclusion of the presentations.

We will use the GoToMeeting system for conducting the webinar; instructions on how to join can be found below. We will record this webinar and make it available from the Understanding Dairy Markets website. Pre-registration is not required. There is a limitation of 100 connections so please consider joining as a group to allow for a greater number of attendees.

We will be online 15 minutes prior to the start of the webinar.
