2014 Farm Bill dairy margin protection program meeting set
The 2014 farm bill has made changes in the dairy program. New in this farm bill is a dairy risk management program that is called the Dairy Margin Protection Program. It will use a combination of national milk price and national feed cost to determine if a payment will be made. All dairy farmers will need to make a decision whether to participate or not in the program. If a farm decides to participate, then an additional decision must be made indicating at what level the farm will participate.
Regional meetings have been scheduled at three locations within the state to explain the basics of the program, introduce dairy farmers to the terminology used in the program and begin conversations about how each farm will make a decision about participation or non-participation in the program. The meeting for the local region of the state will be held on
