Next LGM-Dairy sales period is Nov. 30

Next LGM-Dairy sales period is Nov. 30
Approximately $10 million will be available to cover subsidized premiums and costs for the Nov. 30 Livestock Gross Margin-Dairy (LGM-Dairy) margin insurance sales period. Dr. Brian Gould, professor in the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics, recommends planning with an insurance agent should be done well in advance, given the short sign-up window, and recent experience that the simple 10-month, 100% coverage plan did not provide adequate coverage.
Gould’s LGM-Dairy Analyzer software system can be used for planning purposes (http://future.aae.wisc.edu/lgm_analyzer/), or contact him at bwgould@wisc.edu or phone 608-263-3212. For additional information, visit http://future.aae.wisc.edu/lgm_dairy.html.
