The USDA's Farm Service Agency is reminding producers that the deadline to sign-up for the Milk Income Loss Contract program is this Sunday, September 30th. The MILC Program financially compensates dairy producers when domestic milk prices fall below a specified level. MILC payments are made monthly when the milk price falls below the established price per hundredweight.
The application deadline falls on the weekend. Therefore, the last business day that County Offices can accept applications is Friday, September 28th. Applications received by mail with a postmark date no later than September 30th, may be accepted.
Verifiable production evidence that confirms the dairy operation's eligible production and commercial milk marketings must be provided to County Offices before any payment will be issued to the dairy operation.
