New EQIP Dollars Available

Funding for the Environmental Quality Incentive Program were greatly increased in this year's farm bill. According to Dairy Profit Weekly, "A total of $9 billion has been earmarked for EQIP grants, or $1.5 billion per year, with 60 percent targeted to livestock, compared with a 50-percent livestock/crop funding split under the current program. Dairy producers should get one-third of total EQIP funding, or $500 million per year for six years"
