USDA Milk Loss Program Assistance Due Date Moved to Oct. 30
Administered by USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) MLP compensates dairy producers who, because of qualifying weather events, dumped or removed milk without compensation from the commercial milk market in calendar years 2020, 2021 and 2022. Eligible causes of loss also include consequences of these weather events, such as power outages, impassable roads and infrastructure losses.
FSA Administrator Zach Ducheneaux says in a press release that they understand “dairy farming is a 24/7, 365-day commitment, and that they hope the application deadline extension ensures all dairy farmers in need of assistance will now have adequate time to apply.”
