Attention Dairy Producers!


More Time to Apply for Dairy Margin Protection Program

The Agriculture Department has announced that the application deadline for the Dairy Margin Protection Program will be extended until Dec. 19. The program, established by the 2014 farm bill, protects participating dairy farmers when the margin – the difference between the price of milk and feed costs – falls below levels of protection selected by the applicant.

According to Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, “For just $100, a farmer can cover 90 percent of production at $4 margin swings, and with affordable incremental premiums, dairy farmers can cover up to $8 margin swings.”
Those who apply this year will receive a slight increase in production
protection that will not be available in the future. Farmers who do not sign up
for 2015 will forfeit the 1 percent base production increase. For a 400-cow operation, this would equate to an additional 80,000 pounds of milk that are eligible for coverage.
