2018 Result: I was proud to help pass the Farm Bill, which included my initiatives to better serve North Country dairy producers. I fought to increase the top coverage level for the Margin Protection Program (MPP) that protects farmers when the difference between milk prices and feed costs drops below a certain amount. This bill also helps reduce costs for our dairy farmers by including my request to reduce MPP premiums significantly on every farmer’s first five million pounds of milk covered in the program – roughly 220 cows. These common-sense fixes will give our North Country dairy farms the support they need.
