MPP Program Extended Until Dec. 19
A series of MPP dairy producer information meetings were held throughout Indiana, a partnership between Purdue Extension, Farm Service Agency and Indiana Dairy Producers.
MPP is a safety net for catastrophic risk protection and should not be used as a profit-making tool. Enrollment for 2014 and 2015 is from Sept. 2, 2014 through December 5, 2014. Once a farm is enrolled, the operation is committed through 2018 for at least the $100 program fee and the minimum coverage. All dairy operations who work through a cooperative should have received a statement of milk production, which is very helpful in using the online decision support tool. Click here and then look to the upper right corner for the decision tool link. There are also instructions for use if you have questions.
Please contact Doug Leman at 317-695-8228 if you wish to discuss this program, need further information, or have any questions about it. Dairy farmers should not miss the opportunity for minimum protection at least for 2015, but producers must sign up with FSA by December 5th. News from 12/4/14. FSA/USDA has just extended the MPP Signup deadline to December 19.
