Kansas FSA Reminds Dairy Producers of MILC Program Requirements
02/29/2012
 

        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
of the program requirements should there be an opportunity for payments."

        Producer's shall notify the FSA office if there have been any
changes to the dairy operation.  Also, any new dairies that have not
previously participated in the MILC program will need to fill out the
CCC-580, Milk Income Loss Contract.

        If a payment rate is announced, dairy producers enrolled in the MILC
program will need to provide their local county office with documentation
showing the eligible milk production and commercial milk marketing for the
months with a MILC payment rate in effect.

        When producers enroll in MILC, a payment start month is selected.
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
month designated cannot be changed if the new month being selected has
already begun or has already passed.   It is the producer's responsibility
to review their MILC contract to determine the selected start month that
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.

        MILC program participants are also required to comply with FSA's
Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) requirements each fiscal year. This
certification, on a CCC-931, must be completed prior to a payment being
disbursed.

        For more information the MILC program, please contact your county
FSA Office or visit www.fsa.usda.gov.
