Avg. IOFC = $4.58The MPP Participation DecisionTwo types of individuals:Those who have signed up going into a particular year and need to think about contract designThose who have not signed up and have toDecide whether or not to sign-upIf signing up, design the contractEither type of individual needs an estimate of IOFC over the next yearLets first talk about those who have already signed up16Contract Decision: Already Signed UpFor those currently enrolled there will be annual decisions as to:Minimum IOFC protectedPercent of current APH that will be insuredNeed to look forward for the 12 months encompassed by the next MPP contractDMaP team has developed a tool to forecast likely IOFC scenarios Based on current (i.e., date of analysis) futures market conditionsDairy Margin Protection Decision Tool
