NMPF Applauds USDA Move on Milk Disposal, Urges Further Action

Fri, 10 Apr 2020 17:00:43 CDT

NMPF Applauds USDA Move on Milk Disposal, Urges Further Action The National Milk Producers Federation thanked the U.S. Department of Agriculture for allowing discarded milk to be counted toward milk marketings for the Dairy Revenue Production (DRP) or as actual marketings for the Livestock Gross Margin for Dairy (LGM-Dairy) programs.

That decision will allow dairy farmers participating in those risk management programs not to lose coverage on any milk that can't be marketed and will be helpful in mitigating some of the catastrophic damage many dairies face due to supply-chain disruption caused by the coronavirus crisis.

"The market realities of the COVID-19 era demand solutions, and USDA's decision is a balm for thousands of dairy farmers participating in these important risk-management programs," NMPF President and CEO Jim Mulhern.

"We commend USDA's decision and look forward to discussing further actions that can provide immediate relief for all dairy farmers, as outlined in our joint plan developed with the International Dairy Foods Association that we sent to the department earlier this week. Together, we can make a real difference for dairy, and we are pleased with USDA's action here."
