BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Vermont’s congressional delegation is urging dairy farmers to apply for a federal program to help them get through what will likely be a tough 2021.

The Dairy Margin Coverage Program helps producers manage volatile milk prices and feed costs. As the market continues to stabilize, this safety net program is expected to make payments to farmers throughout next year.

To enroll, you have to contact your Farm Service Agency by December 11th.

You can give the FSA State Office a call at (802) 658-2803 or visit the website here.
