 |  By: Jim Dickrell

The National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) has updated both its website and its on-line tools to assist dairy farmers in evaluating the 2017 Dairy Margin Protection Program. Enrollment  for 2017 started July 1 and will end September 30.

“The poor margins in the first half of 2016 demonstrate that the Margin Protection Program can play an important role in helping America’s dairy farmers manage their financial risks,” says Jim Mulhern, president and CEO of NMPF.  “While we continue to examine ways to improve the program in the future, farmers need to carefully consider their risk management coverage options in 2017.”
