Dairy Assistance Program
Recently, the Minnesota Department of Agriculture announced the rollout of the new Dairy Assistance, Investment, and Relief Initiative (DAIRI) program, which provides financial assistance for small- to medium-sized dairy producers who meet certain qualifications. This program was funded through the Agriculture and the Jobs omnibus bills this session to ensure that our dairy farmers can continue the work that is so important to our state.
To apply, or for information on how to qualify, please visit www.mda.state.mn.us/dairi.
