The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced today that enrollment for the 2023 Dairy Margin Coverage (DMC) program is now open. FarmFirst Dairy Cooperative encourages all dairy farmers to participate in this important safety net program that continues to provide for dairy farmers across the U.S. when margins become tight.

“The DMC program has been a valuable part of dairy producers’ risk management program, providing incredibly affordable coverage over the past several years for small- to mid-sized dairy farms,” says John Rettler, dairy farmer from Neosho, Wis., and President of FarmFirst Dairy Cooperative. “Dairy markets will always be unpredictable, no matter what is being forecasted for milk prices. To minimize volatility, dairy farmers should enroll in the program regardless of the milk price outlook.”
