Dairy deadline extended

The U.S. Department of AgriĀ­culture has extended the application deadline for the dairy Margin Protection Program (MPP) until Dec. 19, 2014.

The program, established by the 2014 farm bill, protects participating dairy producers when the margin — the difference between the price of milk and feed costs — falls below levels of protection selected by the applicant.
