Dairy Pricing, Outlook, and Risk Management Series Coming in November

Dianne Shoemaker, Farm Management Specialist, Ohio State University Extension

How in the world did we end up with a negative eight dollar producer price differential (PPD) in July? What do markets look like moving forward? What tools can a dairy farm use to manage price risk in the future?

These are excellent questions and the focus of a three-part mini-series for Ohio’s dairy industry coming in November. The meetings will be live via zoom, so grab your lunch and join us on your computer or listen in from your phone from noon to one pm for any or all of these sessions:
