A farm reporter called me last night wondering if I knew how many beef producers signed up for RMIP. I of course have no idea. I do know from the reports out of OCA most of the cattle are under the RMIP. The first year the premiums were free, so if the there are payouts it is found money. Seems like easy money to me. I would think that everyone would sign up for the first year at least. But, I may be wrong.
In the sheep industy I understand that there was a small number that signed up and there was a payout. Just like you said, I'm not sure why they wouldn't sign up when there was no premium. At least it gives us an idea as to the program.
