The new Farm Bill contains a number of important changes to USDA programs that will impact our farmers. They are outlined below:


The registration period for 2016 coverage for the Dairy Margin Protection Program (MPP) is from July 1 to September 30, 2015.

Farmers who participated in the 2015 program will get an automatic increase to their Production History of 1.0261 or 2.61%. This will allow them to enroll just that much more milk marketing's. For producers who are signing up for the first time, they will get their production History as established according to the original rules, with no adjustment or "bump". The process for establishing a Production History is described in the MPP tools section of www.dairymarkets.org.
