The National Milk Producers Federation March CEO’s Corner titled, “Congress Shores up the Dairy Safety Net,” is now available on the NMPF website. But in his March column, NMPF President and CEO Jim Mulhern reviews the changes they worked with Congress on to make in the dairy safety net, and discusses how these changes will benefit dairy farmers. He notes it was one year ago the NMPF Board of Directors endorsed a package of recommended changes to the dairy Margin Protection Program (MPP). Congress did adopted the desired changes in early February, using the disaster funding bill to deliver many of the enhancements NMPF sought.
