Vermont dairy farmers are getting supplemental milk payments from the state.
The Agriculture Agency says checks were mailed on Friday to farmers.
The state is distributing $3 million to farmers to help get them through the spring planting season.
The agency says every farmer with production in January and February are getting 74 cents per hundred pounds of milk produced.
The Legislature and governor decided to distribute the money because of a series of challenges, including low milk prices, high energy and feed costs, and poor weather.
