Beginning April 15 farmers and ranchers can sign-up for disaster assistance programs.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture has announced that farmers and ranchers, including horse breeding farms and ranches, can sign-up for disaster assistance programs, reestablished by the 2014 Farm Bill, beginning April 15.
The 2014 Farm bill reauthorized the Livestock Indemnity Program, the Livestock Forage Program and the Emergency Livestock Assistance Program, which expired in 2011. These programs are administrated by the USDA Farm Service Administration and compensate livestock producers, including horse breeding farms and ranches, for the loss of animals from natural disasters and diseases, and help producers who have lost grazing land from drought pay for feed.
For more information or to determine your eligibility, visit the FSA disaster assistance website or contact your local FSA office.
