When: 
Tuesday, Sep. 2, 2014 (All day) to Friday, Dec. 5, 2014 (All day)
Where: 
Your county FSA office
Description/Notes: 

Signup for MPP-Dairy takes place from September 2 through November 28, 2014. During this first signup period, producers can register for the September through December 2014 coverage period and/or the January through December 2015 coverage period. 2014 and 2015 coverage elections can be different. Coverage election in subsequent years will take place from July 1 through September 30.

Payments under the Margin Protection Program for Dairy Producers (MPP-Dairy) may be reduced by a certain percentage due to a sequester order required by Congress and issued pursuant to the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985. Should a payment reduction be necessary, FSA will reduce the payment by the required amount.

For more information on MPP see the Farm Bill 2014 page.  To see the MPP decision making tool please go to http://www.fsa.usda.gov/FSA/pages/content/farmBill/fb_MPPDTool.jsp.
