Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding reminds dairy farmers the deadline to apply for the CARES Act-funded Dairy Indemnity Program, which provides financial relief for losses due to discarded or displaced milk during the COVID-19 pandemic, is Sept. 30.

“Early in the pandemic, our dairy industry was in a complete free-fall with no certainty,” said Redding. “This program is providing much-needed relief to our farmers. If you know a dairy farmer that faced the hardship of dumping milk down the drain, urge them to apply for the Dairy Indemnity Program. This is not a hand out, it’s a hand up.”
