ASM ISSUE: 226 The #10GallonChallenge Takes Over Social Media
With the state of milk prices today, we’re happy to see someone trying to help dairy producers and also people in need at the same time. Dairy Herd Management just published another amazing story that I just had to share. Have you heard of the #10GallonChallenge?
Ty Higgins is a farm broadcaster. He developed the #10GallonChallenge to get milk off the store shelves and into local pantries. “Dairy farmers right now are in the worst position they’ve been in in years and so I thought, ‘How can I help them?'” Higgins said in an interview with We Are Green Bay.
ASM ISSUE: 227: Dairy Revenue Protection Launching This October
We all know the milk industry has been a “bit” shaky as of late. So I thought I’d share an article I found on Progressive Dairyman since the industry could use a bit of good news right about now.
Dairy Revenue Protection insurance coverage is due to launch early this October. This will provide dairy farmers with a way to manage income risk next year. You can sign up for this policy starting October 9, 2018. The first available coverage will begin during the first quarter of 2019. This provides dairy farmers with insurance for milk revenues on a quarterly basis.
