Chris Galen, Sr. VP of Communications joined us on today’s Dairy Radio Now to tell us why it’s important for dairy producers to take a second look at the program since it was revised under the Bipartisan Budget Act passed by Congress in February.

Coverage choices made this spring for calendar year 2018 will be retroactive to Jan. 1, 2018. All dairy operations desiring coverage must sign up during the eight-week enrollment period.
