Farmer Incentive Days

Last updated 23 July, 2021

To encourage increased production in the fall months, all producers may be given additional fall incentive credits based on their daily quota allotment. In addition, incentive days may also be used to encourage milk production in response to market conditions.

(a) Incentive credits are available only for the month in which they are allotted, and cannot be carried forward in part or whole.

(b) Incentive credits are utilized once the monthly quota is full, and before any under-production or over-production credits.
