Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding said farmers that experienced financial losses due to discarded or displaced milk during the COVID-19 emergency disaster can apply. Each farm with a documented loss will get a minimum of $1,500.
So far, only 900 farms have applied for direct relief, leaving more than $13 million on the table. Pennsylvania is home to nearly 7,000 dairy farms.
The deadline to apply for the Dairy Indemnity Program is Sept. 30.
