USDA Reminds Dairy Producers on Meeting MILC Requirements

Dairy producers in the area must meet certain requirements in order to stay eligible for a particular program, reminds one government agency.

The Lubbock County U.S. Department of Agriculture Farm Service Agency is reminding dairy producers that they must meet Milk Income Loss Contract program requirements to maintain eligibility, in the event that prices drop.

The program helps dairy producers when milk prices drop below a specific level.

“At this time, MILC payments are not being made because the price is above the trigger level,” said Cary Hanlin, Lubbock County FSA executive director. “FSA just wants producers to stay on top of eligibility requirements should there be an opportunity for payment.”

MILC participants are required to notify their local FSA office of any operation changes, such as a change in producer, shares, address, or bank routing number. Producers also must meet adjusted gross income requirements in order to be eligible for the MILC program.

Eligible producers can apply for program benefits through September 30th, 2012.
