The rule would set how the Dairy Disaster Assistance Program III would be administered. DDAP-III provides $16 million to help dairy producers recover losses between Jan. 1, 2005 and Feb. 28, 2007. Comments may be made on proposed eligibility requirements, proof of production history, loss determinations, payment rates, payment rate calculations, appeals and other program provisions.
