The 2014 Farm Bill initiated a new dairy program that is expected to assist in risk management when the MILC and price support programs expire.
All dairy farmers will need to make a decision about whether to participate. If a farmer chooses to participate, they will also choose a level of participation.
Join us at one of the MSU Extension meetings to learn more about the Dairy Margin Protection Program and what it means for your business.
These meetings are sponsored by the North Central Risk Management Education Center and the United States Department of Agriculture. Material used is based upon work supported by USDA-NIFA under Award Number 2012-49200-20032.
