1st MILC Program Deadline
M. Garcia, Administrator of USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA), reminded
producers yesterday that final production evidence and any supporting
documentation for eligible months that Milk Income Loss Contract (MILC)
payments were available must be submitted by Nov. 1, 2013
“The MILC program helps dairy
producers get through tough economic times and is another reason we need a new
Farm, Food and Job bill," said Garcia. "When low dairy prices create
a hardship for dairy producers, payments are made to those who participate in
the program to ensure they have the financial assistance they need to maintain
their business,” and to ensure the stimulation of local economies.
Statutory authority for the MILC
program expired Sept. 30, 2013; new legislation is required for the MILC
program, or its replacement, to provide assistance.
For more information on MILC, contact
a local FSA office or search “MILC” at www.fsa.usda.gov.
