Farmers have until Nov. 28 to enroll in the new dairy Margin Protection Program for 2014 and 2015. Established by the 2014 Farm Bill, the program provides financial assistance to participating farmers when the margin – the difference between the price of milk and feed costs – falls below the coverage level selected by the farmer. The program replaces the Milk Income Loss Contract program and gives dairy producers the flexibility to select coverage levels best suited for their operations.
