The USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) will host informational meetings on the Market Facilitation Program (MFP) on October 17, 2018. The meeting will be held at the Shawano FSA office on October 17 at 10:00 a.m. FSA staff will provide an overview of the program and discuss eligibility and documentation requirements.
USDA is taking action to assist farmers in response to trade damage from unjustified retaliation by foreign nations. FSA will administer the MFP to provide payments to corn, cotton, dairy, hog, sorghum, soybean, and wheat producers starting September 4, 2018. The initial MFP payment will be calculated by multiplying 50 percent of the producer’s total 2018 actual production by the applicable MFP rate. If CCC announces a second MFP payment period, the remaining 50 percent of the producer’s total 2018 actual production will be subject to the second MFP payment rate.
Please RSVP for the Wednesday, October 17 meeting to the Shawano County FSA Office at 715-524-4814 ext. 2 no later than Tuesday, October 16, 2018. Persons with disabilities who require accommodations to attend or participate in this meeting should contact Emily Schlidgen at (715) 524-4814 extension 2, or Federal Relay Service at 1-800-877-8339 by October 10, 2018.
