Dairy cows

Dairy cows graze on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington. The USDA has extended the signup deadline for margin insurance.

Dairy farmers will have an extra week to sign up for the Dairy Margin Coverage program, a federal program that insures the margins between milk prices and feed costs.

USDA has extended the enrollment deadline for 2020 participation to Dec. 20 due to the prolonged and extensive impacts of weather this year.

The deadline had been Dec. 13.
