The Dairy Margin Protection Program

NOTE: Following passage of the 2018 Farm Bill and introduction of the Dairy Margin Coverage (DMC) program, this website has now entered archive status and will no longer be updated. For more information, please visit the NMPF website or email

In February 2018, Congress approved several significant updates to the MPP and other insurance options offered through USDA, and is considering additional improvements as part of the 2018 Farm Bill. The period to enroll or change coverage options in the MPP for 2018 closed on June 22, 2018.
