Dairymen can get milk marketing advice on conference calls


HARRISBURG, Pa. — Dairy farmers can learn strategies that may help control milk’s price and increase market value during two March “Mastering the Dairy Business” conference calls hosted by Pennsylvania’s Center for Dairy Excellence.

The calls are scheduled from noon to 1:30 p.m. March 11 and March 23.

First session

The first call will look at forward pricing milk, and will be led Ben Yale, an attorney from Waynesfield, Ohio.

Yale will help producers anticipate what price is coming and actually protect a price or margin for their milk, rather than measure the value of their milk based on the previous month’s price.

Second session

The March 23 conference call will feature Scott Stewart and Mike Hogan from the consulting firm Stewart-Peterson.

Stewart is a leading authority on market strategies and risk management, and Hogan is the director of Market 360, and an expert at helping producers understand the importance of managing their operations efficiently and keeping a watchful eye on the bottom line.

Free to participate

Both conference calls are free, but pre-registration is required to participate. Participation is on a first-come, first-served basis.

To register, call the center at 717-346-0849 with the date of call, name, phone number and e-mail address. Once registered, the participant will receive the call-in number and code.

For more information about the conference calls, call the center at 717-346-0849 or e-mail the center at info@centerfordairyexcellence.org.
