USDA Extends Application Deadline for Dairy Margin Protection Program to June 22
U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue announced that the re-enrollment deadline for the Margin Protection Program (MPP) for Dairy will be extended until June 22, 2018. The new and improved program 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. USDA has already issued more than $89 million for margins triggered in February, March, and April, and USDA offices are continuing to process remaining payments daily. For more, please click here.
