2014 Farm Bill: The Margin Protection Program Dashboard MPP-Dairy

The 2014 Farm Bill provides the most comprehensive reform to the U.S. federal dairy farm safety net seen in decades. In place of milk price and revenue support programs the new Farm Bill creates a Margin Protection Program for Dairy Producers (MPP-Dairy). MPP-Dairy is specifically designed to be simple to use and appealing to all dairy producers regardless of management style or business model. First, it provides dairy producers the opportunity to annually self-select coverage levels to protect against declines in national, rather than farm-level, income-over-feed-cost margins. Second, the premium rates are fixed at predetermined levels explicitly written into the Farm Bill. Finally, farms of all sizes can purchase margin protection near their historical maximum levels of milk production.

It is time we farmers get more involved to make changes on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC that will improve our bottom line. We have worked our entire lives to build equity, but wasteful spending and more unfounded costly regulations are tearing away our profits.

The Dairy Business Milk Marketing Cooperative (DBMMC) was formed to help you improve your bottom line. When DBMMC began we reduced the charge for verification services; shortly after that all verification cooperatives reduced their charge; saving millions of dollars for farmers. This is just the beginning of what DBMMC will do for you!

"DBMMC will be your watchdog to make sure good policy is passed that will help you. We have great relationships with members in Congress and their staffs to remove bad policy, unnecessary regulations, and bring back common sense."
