Farmers experiencing losses from April until the end of the year can apply for assistance through their local Farm Service Agency. The closing date for applications is 11 December. Click here to apply online or download an application.

Minnesota ranks first nationwide in turkey production. As the state with the most independent turkey producers, securing CFAP legislation to include these farmers was of utmost important to the MTGA.

Although it appears breeding livestock and contract growers are excluded from CFAP2, MTGA continues to work for coverage for those farmers. We will also continue to push for expansion of indemnity coverage for turkey industry stakeholders.
