The President signed the Agricultural Act of 2014 into law on February 7, 2014. Two things that dairy producers should be aware of is that the Milk Income Loss Contracts (MILC) will expire on August 31, and the Farm Service Agency will begin to administer a new safety net program, called the Margin Protection Program, or MPP-Dairy.

UW-Extension/Center for Dairy Profitability, will be conducting many educational programs around the state at the end of August and the month of September. Producers should be encouraged to attend and learn more about the MPP-Dairy. Also check in with the website http://DairyMarkets.org where we will be posting a lot of material about MPP-Dairy and will provide access to the on-line web applicationand decision tool when the Farm Service Agency (FSA) has announced sign-up!
