Introducing the New Margin Protection Program

On August 28, 2014, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced details for a long-awaited and much-improved safety net for dairy farmers. Developed by the National Milk Producers Federation and five years in the making, the new Dairy Margin Protection Program, or MPP, is the most significant rewrite of dairy policy in more than a generation. Sign-up concluded on December 19, 2014.

Use our website to find up-to-date information on how the program will work and how it can help limit the volatility in farmers’ margins.

A regular, detailed update on the margins between milk prices and feed costs can be downloaded from the Margin Protection Program webpage.
