New Entrant Quota Assistance Program

October 24, 2023

Dairy Farmers of Ontario’s (DFO) New Entrant Quota Assistance Program is designed to assist those with an interest in dairy farming who may not otherwise have the financial means or opportunity to get started in the industry.
The P5 makes available 160 kilograms of quota per year for the program in Ontario.  Subject to DFO issuing a licence to produce and market milk and approving an order to issue quota, DFO will match 20 kilograms of quota to each successful applicant.
As a result, there are 8 positions available.

If you have further questions, please contact the Field Services Representative in your area of the province.
