Kansas FSA Reminds Dairy Producers of MILC Program Requirements

        Adrian Polansky, Executive Director of USDA's Farm Service Agency (FSA) in
Kansas, reminds dairy producers of some important program requirements
to be eligible for payment under the Milk Income Loss Contract (MILC) program.

        "At this time, prices haven't fallen to a level to trigger a MILC
payment," Polansky said. "However, we want all dairy producers to be aware

This month remains the same through each program year, unless a change is
requested on form CCC-580M.  Producers who wish to change their MILC program
start month can do so unlimited number of times throughout their enrollment
in MILC, provided the changes are made on or before the 14th day of the
month prior to the new MILC production start-month. The production start

will be applicable for FY2012.

        MILC has a production limitation of 2.985 million pounds eligible
for payment through August 31, 2012 for fiscal year 2012.
