The Dairy Margin Protection Program

As of July 1, 2015, dairy farmers have 90 days to enroll or change their coverage for 2016 in the USDA’s Margin Protection program. Developed by the National Milk Producers Federation, the Margin Protection Program, or MPP, offers the best catastrophic protection for America’s dairy farmers. This website will continue to feature information about how the program works, how it is functioning in 2015, and the enrollment decisions that farmers have to make in 2015.
