I shared an article about MMP before Christmas last year. According to Progressive Dairyman, Sonny Perdue, the U.S. Ag secretary, promises that there will be a stronger safety net for the 2018 Farm Bill.
Perdue says this will allow farmers to “weather times of economic stress without distorting markets or increasing shallow loss payments.” The current MMP seems inadequate, according to Jim Mulhern, NMPF president and CEO.
Mulhern states that the USDA has taken steps to improve the program, but says more is needed. Click here to read the necessary MMP changes according to NMPF.
