On Feb. 9, 2018, the Bipartisan Budget Act was signed into law, and included substantial changes to the Margin Protection Program for Dairy for the 2018 coverage, including a new signup for 2018, beginning April 9, 2018, and ending on June 1, 2018.
The new signup allows dairy producers, including those that previously signed up and those that did not, an opportunity to make new elections for 2018. Coverage begins January 1, 2018. If you previously elected coverage for 2018, you must make a new coverage election for 2018. If you do not make a new election you will not have coverage for 2018.
This meeting will provide information about:
- Overview of MPP-Dairy and changes to the program
- Decisions for 2018: whether to sign-up, what margin coverage level and how much milk to cover
