USDA REMINDS DAIRIES OF MILC PRODUCTION EVIDENCE DEADLINE

USDA REMINDS DAIRIES OF MILC PRODUCTION EVIDENCE DEADLINE

October 27, 2013

November 1st MILC Program Deadline

Juan M. Garcia, Administrator of USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA), reminded producers yesterday that final production evidence and any supporting documentation for eligible months that Milk Income Loss Contract (MILC) payments were available must be submitted by Nov. 1, 2013


“The MILC program helps dairy producers get through tough economic times and is another reason we need a new Farm, Food and Job bill,” said Garcia. “When low dairy prices create a hardship for dairy producers, payments are made to those who participate in the program to ensure they have the financial assistance they need to maintain their business,” and to ensure the stimulation of local economies.


Statutory authority for the MILC program expired Sept. 30, 2013; new legislation is required for the MILC program, or its replacement, to provide assistance.


For more information on MILC, contact a local FSA office or search “MILC” at www.fsa.usda.gov.
