USDA Margin Protection Program for Dairy
On August 28, 2014, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced details for a long-awaited and much-improved safety net for dairy farmers. Developed by the National Milk Producers Federation and five years in the making, the new Dairy Margin Protection Program, or MPP, is the most significant rewrite of dairy policy in more than a generation. Sign-up started September 2, 2014, and continues through November 28, 2014.
Please review the dates of our Indiana MPP info meetings on the left bar of our website. These meetings will be held around the state in Goshen, Greenfield, Seymour, Huntington, Jasper and West Lafayette. We are partnering with the Farm Service Agency and Purdue University Extension to bring these valuable resources to Indiana dairy farmers. In the meantime, you can participate in a margin protection calculator and learn much more about the program by visiting National Milk Producers Federation website, here.
