IDFA Backs Efforts to Create Margin-Insurance Plan for Producers

Dec 03, 2010

In her Dairyline broadcast to producers this week, IDFA President and CEO Connie Tipton supported the creation of a new government-subsidized margin-insurance program that will buffer dairy farm income when margins between feed costs and milk prices are squeezed.

"If this sounds a lot like the Dairy Producer Margin Protection Plan proposed by the National Milk Producers Federation, it's because it is," she said. "We need something in place to protect dairy farms within months, not years."
