Dairy producers are reminded that the deadline to sign-up for Milk Income Loss Contract (MILC) benefits is Sunday, Sept. 30. Legislation has not been enacted to extend the MILC program past that date through the Food, Conservation and Energy Act of 2008. The program compensates dairy producers when domestic milk prices fall below a specified level. For more information, see the Sept. 27 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
