Dairy Indemnity Payment Program (DIPP)

Deadline Information:

The Dairy Indemnity Payment Program (DIPP), administered by the Farm Service Agency (FSA), assists dairy producers who experience financial losses due to the contamination of their milk or the necessary culling of dairy cows because of residues, chemicals, toxic substances, or nuclear radiation or fallout. This program provides payments to producers who cannot sell their milk on the commercial market due to contamination, ensuring they can recover from these adverse events and continue their operations.

Detailed enrollment instructions and deadlines are available through the local FSA office or the official USDA website.
