The Milk Income Loss Contract program will be around for two more years.
House and Senate negotiators agreed to keep it in the budget.
The program, known as MILC, pays dairy farmers cash when milk prices fall below certain levels.
It expired September 30.
Since the program started in 2002, Wisconsin farmers have received more than $400 million.
