What is DMC?

  • DMC stands for Dairy Margin Coverage. DMC evolved from previous dairy income support programs. DMC is a direct descendant of MPP-Dairy. Over its evolution, dairy policy has moved from certainty, set minimum price, to income risk that is insured by DMC.

Is DMC permanent?

Our aim is to empower dairy operations to be both sustainable and resilient while maintaining profitability. Our ideas, actions, and communications will promote resource-based stewardship while enhancing human and animal well-being.
