Dairy Margin Coverage Program

The enrollment period for the 2024 Dairy Margin Program year begins Feb. 28, 2024, and ends April 29, 2024. For those who sign up for 2024 DMC coverage, payments may begin as soon as March 4, 2024, for any payments that triggered in January 2024.

DMC continues to offer protection to dairy producers when the difference between the all-milk price and the average feed price (the margin) falls below a certain dollar amount selected by the producer.

FSA has revised the regulations for DMC to allow eligible dairy operations to make a one-time adjustment to established production history. This adjustment will be accomplished by combining previously established supplemental production history with DMC production history for those dairy operations that participated in Supplemental Dairy Margin Coverage during a prior coverage year. DMC has also been authorized through calendar year 2024. Congress passed a 2018 Farm Bill extension requiring these regulatory changes to the program. Read more

Decision Tool

The DMC decision tool has been enhanced and was developed in partnership with representatives from the University of Minnesota and University of Wisconsin to help producers determine the level of coverage under a variety of conditions that will provide them with the strongest financial safety net.

Enrollment Reports

Updated DMC enrollment reports will be posted to this webpage at 2 PM eastern on the first Monday of each month.  The first enrollment report for the 2023 program year is available on this webpage

The 2018 Farm Bill authorized the new Dairy Margin Coverage (DMC) program, which is a voluntary risk management program for dairy producers. DMC replaces the Margin Protection Program for Dairy (MPP-Dairy).

See Final Dairy Rule 

About the Program

Who is Eligible?

To be eligible for DMC, a dairy operation must:

  • Produce and commercially market milk from cows located in the United States; and
  • Provide proof of milk production at the time of registration.

Dairy operations may consist of one or more dairy producers who are in the business of commercially producing and marketing milk as a single unit.

Dairy producers who are members of the dairy operation must share in the risk of producing milk and make contributions to the dairy operation that are at least commensurate with their share of the proceeds of the operation.

Dairy operations must be in compliance with highly erodible land and wetland conservation provisions. For more information, visit fsa.usda.gov/compliance. Adjusted gross income provisions do not apply to DMC.

Producers may have more than one dairy operation, but they must be separate and distinct in order to have a separate contract.

How it Works

To participate in DMC, dairy producers:

  • Select a coverage level ranging from $4.00 to $9.50 per cwt, in $0.50 increments
  • Select a coverage percentage of the dairy operation’s production history ranging from 5 percent to 95 percent, in 5 percent increments

FSA has revised DMC regulations to extend coverage for calendar year 2024, which is retroactive to Jan. 1, 2024, and to provide an adjustment to the production history for dairy operations with less than 5 million pounds of production. In previous years, smaller dairy operations could establish a supplemental production history and receive Supplemental Dairy Margin Coverage. For 2024, dairy producers can establish one adjusted base production history through DMC for each participating dairy operation to better reflect the operation’s current production.

For 2024 DMC enrollment, dairy operations that established supplemental production history through Supplemental Dairy Margin Coverage for coverage years 2021 through 2023, will combine the supplemental production history with established production history for one adjusted base production history.  

For dairy operations enrolled in 2023 DMC under a multi-year lock-in contract, lock-in eligibility will be extended until Dec. 31, 2024. In addition, dairy operations enrolled in multi-year lock-in contracts are eligible for the discounted DMC premium rate during the 2024 coverage year. To confirm 2024 DMC lock-in coverage or opt out in favor of an annual contract for 2024, dairy operations having lock-in contracts must enroll during the 2024 DMC enrollment period.     

DMC offers different levels of coverage, even an option that is free to producers, minus a $100 administrative fee. The administrative fee is waived for dairy producers who are considered limited resource, beginning, socially disadvantaged or a military veteran. To determine the appropriate level of DMC coverage for a specific dairy operation, producers can use the online dairy decision tool.

More Information

Dairy Margin Coverage

This DMC decision tool can be used to help you look at and think about what your opportunities are. 

Note on Sequestration: DMC indemnity payments will be reduced by a certain percentage (5.7 percent for 2023; 5.7 percent for 2022; 5.7 percent for 2021; 5.9 percent for 2020; 6.2 percent for 2019) due to a sequester order required by Congress and issued pursuant to the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985. FSA will reduce DMC indemnity payments by the applicable sequestration percentage before distribution to participating operations.

Enrollment, Production, and Payments Updates

For both DMC (for calendar year 2023) and Supplemental DMC, the enrollment period opened Oct. 17. and closed Dec. 9, 2022.
