Nebraska Extension and the Nebraska State Dairy Association are hosting two Farm Bill Dairy Margin Coverage (DMC) Lunch N Learn sessions. Each Lunch N Learn will focus on the dairy related changes and information in the current Farm Bill.
Enrollment in the DMC program is ongoing at Nebraska USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) county offices now through Sept. 20. The DMC program is a voluntary risk management program that offers producers protection when the difference between the all milk price and the average feed price (the margin) falls below a certain dollar amount selected by the producer.
A representative of Nebraska FSA also will be present at the education sessions. Dairy producers also can learn more about the DMC program by visiting USDA’s online DMC Decision Support Tool. It can be found by going to www.farmers.gov.

July 26 - Madison County Extension Office; 1305 S. 13th Street, Norfolk, NE
