USDA extends DMC deadline

Deadline to enroll in Dairy Margin Coverage extended to Dec. 20 from Dec. 13

USDA has extended the deadline to enroll in the Dairy Margin Coverage program for the 2020 calendar year an extra week to Dec. 20. USDA is also continuing to accept applications for the Market Facilitation Program through Dec. 20.

“2019 has challenged the country’s ag sector – prevented or late planting followed by a delayed harvest has been further complicated by wet and cold weather,” said Bill Northey, USDA Under Secretary for Farm Production and Conservation. “Because some of our producers are still in the field, time to conduct business at the local USDA office is at a premium.  We hope this deadline extension will allow producers the opportunity to participate in these important programs.”

Authorized by the 2018 Farm Bill and available through USDA’s Farm Service Agency, the program offers protection to dairy producers when the difference between the all-milk price and the average feed cost (the margin) falls below a certain dollar amount selected by the producer.

The Market Facilitation Program is part of a relief strategy to support American agricultural producers impacted by trade disruptions.
