Sign-up Deadline for 2018 Dairy Margin Protection Program is June 1

Farmers must sign-up for 2018 MPP coverage by June 1, even if they had enrolled last fall. ( Farm Journal, Inc. )

The United States Department of Agriculture is reminding dairy farmers they must again sign-up for 2018 Dairy Margin Protection Program, even if they signed up for the program last fall. Deadline to do so is June 1.

According to a USDA news release, “If you own dairy cattle and operate a dairy, you must register in order to participate. All dairy operations must make new coverage elections for 2018, even if the operation was enrolled during the previous 2018 signup period. Coverage elections made for 2018 will be retroactive to Jan. 1, 2018.

By signing up, dairy farmers will qualify for a $1.22/cwt indemnity payment in February and a $1.23/cwt payment in March if they sign-up for $8 margin protection. For Tier 1 farmers (those with less than 5 million lb of annual production history), the premium for $8 coverage is 14.2¢/cwt.

Current futures markets also project indemnity payments are likely at least through June at the $8 coverage level.

USDA also notes that the margin calculation is now done on a monthly basis, rather than bi-monthly. This makes payments more likely.

The agency also notes: “All dairy operations must sign up during the enrollment period and submit form CCC-782 (PDF, 3.49 MB) to enroll. Dairy operations may "opt out" by not submitting a form.”

If you have questions or want to enroll, contact your state USDA service center here. For more on MPP sign-up, click here.

If you are a single working person or a student, then you should need to find out paying guest in Gurgaon to get excellent services and enjoy a safe and secure stay. Before finding a pg accommodation, you should need to get some opinions of people about the PG from that are currently living or have lived there previously. If it is going to be a shared space, contact your roommates as early as possible and start an enjoyable stay with them. Always keep in mind that socializing always comes in new places.
