• Price & Production Protection: revenue is protected from changes in both prices and state level production
• Class & Component Pricing: milk prices used in the policy are not one-size-fits-all and they can be customized to the producer’s specific operation and geographic location
• Affordability: the premium cost is subsidized by 44%-59% by the USDA and payments are not due until the end of the quarterly insurance period
• Uncapped: the program has no caps on volumes or payouts and can be used by dairies large and small in all fifty states to cover up to 95% of their milk production volume
