MILC program extended and start month revisions


Fri, Apr 18th, 2014
Posted in Preston Agriculture

PRESTON, Minn. - Tammy Martin, County Executive Director for USDA’s Farm Service Agency in Fillmore County announced that the 2014 Farm Bill extended the MILC program until September 1, 2014, or until the date on which the new Dairy Margin Protection Program takes effect.

“The MILC contracts are automatically extended for FY2014, so there is no need for producers to re-enroll in the MILC program,” Martin said. “However, because the 2014 Farm Bill was signed after the start of FY 2014, producers were not able to make timely start month selections for FY2014. Therefore, a relief period has been authorized to allow MILC participants to make start month selections for FY 2014 during the authorized relief period.”

MILC participants can change their start month beginning April 14 through May 30, 2014, by completing a CCC-580M form for the FY 2014 production only. Also new producers that started a dairy operation since October 1, 2013 can also make application starting April 14, 2014. For more information producers should visit their local USDA Service Center or FSA county office or www.fsa.usda.gov.

Dairy Indemnity Payment Program extended

The 2014 Farm Bill also extended the Dairy Indemnity Payment Program (DIPP) through September 30, 2018. DIPP is available to dairy farmers for milk, or cows producing milk, and manufacturers of dairy products who have been directed to remove their milk or dairy products from commercial markets because of the presence of certain chemical or toxic residue in the products. Payments of DIPP claims is contingent upon the authority and availability of funds.

For more information producers can contact their local USDA Service Center or www.fsa.usda.gov.
