Farm Credit Services of America (FCSAmerica) and Frontier Farm Credit co-sponsored a webinar with Ben Laine, senior dairy analyst, from Terrain™. The webinar recording from February 2 is available. Explore upcoming webinars.

Exports are critical for maintaining high milk prices, but geopolitical risk is elevated. On the domestic front, milk markets continue to evolve and there is potential for federal milk marketing order changes. What does all this mean for dairy producers? Laine discusses the long-term demand and demographic trends and the risk and rewards to watch for in a volatile export market.

Terrain™ is an offering for our customer-owners, supported in partnership with Farm Credit Services of America, Frontier Farm Credit and American AgCredit.
