Signup for the Dairy Margin Coverage program begins Tuesday. Farm Service Agency Administrator Richard Fordyce said 13,000 dairy farmers signed up for the 2020 program. “It wasn’t as high as we had in 2019; we do believe it is a great tool to provide risk management coverage for dairy operations.” There is an enhanced online tool to help dairy farmers weigh the benefits of DMC participation. “Producers will be able to put their own unique farm production information through the tool to make a good decision.” Signup runs through December 11th.
