Bryce Hutson talks with Mike Schouten, owner, and operator of Mission Diary, about the new dairy reports for the week regarding blocks and barrels. They discuss in detail about the new Global Dairy Trading Event in New Zealand on trading for the U.S.
Young dairy cattle are gathered in a barn Thursday Sept. 4, 2014, in East Montpelier, Vt. Vermont agriculture officials visited the farm to encourage the state's dairy farmers to enroll in a new program that protects farmers from low milk prices. Minimum coverage for the Margin Protection Program costs farmers a $100 flat fee. Additional coverage costs more depending on the level of protection the farmer wants and the size of the farm.
