USDA has announced another deadline extension for re-enrollment in the Margin Protection Program for dairy farmers. The new deadline is Friday, June 22. Last week, sign-up was extended to give dairy farmers more time to consider the risk management program. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue says another 500 dairy farms enrolled during that time, but this provides an opportunity for others to sign up for the updated MPP program. Coverage will be retroactive to the beginning of the year and payments are being made to eligible dairy farmers.
