Government Payment Calculators

The Government Payment Calculator will assist producers in determining how much government support they will be receiving.  The Calculator will help to gauge the impact of the payment limitations on each farm.

The Calculator will be updated each time the World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) is released by the USDA.  Currently the January 12th WASDE report is being used for the Marketing Year Average Price within the Calculator.

We recommend that you download the Calculator to your computer.  Make sure and 'Enable Macros' or the calculator will not work.
