Jack County Triggers Eligibility for Livestock Forage Disaster Program
August 14, 2018
Producers in Jack County are eligible to apply for 2018 Livestock Forage Disaster Program (LFP) benefits on native pasture, improved pasture and forage sorghum.
LFP provides compensation to eligible livestock producers who suffer grazing losses for covered livestock due to drought on privately owned or cash leased land.
To complete an application, you will need to provide your head count. They need to be summarized based on how many cows and bulls you have on hand, and any calves weighing over 500 pounds. You will need a written lease signed by all landowners on any cash leased land. At a minimum the lease must have a beginning date, ending date and specify the number of acres you lease.
Eligible livestock producers must complete a CCC-853 and the required supporting documentation no later than Jan. 30, 2019 for 2018 losses.
Additional Information about LFP, including eligible livestock and fire criteria, is available at your local FSA office or online at: www.fsa.usda.gov.
