Dairy Export Incentive Program (DEIP)

This program was repealed by the Agricultural Act of 2014. DEIP paid cash bonuses to exporters, allowing them to buy at U.S. prices and sell abroad at prevailing (lower) international prices. DEIP removed nonfat dry milk, butterfat, and certain cheeses from the domestic market and helped develop export markets. The DEIP was announced by USDA on May 15, 1985. DEIP quantities and dollar amounts were subject to World Trade Organization (WTO) restrictions under the Uruguay Round Agreement on Agriculture.
