Wilson County U.S. Department of Agriculture Farm Service Agency Executive Director Stephen Svacina announced Sept. 12 that all counties in Texas have met the Livestock Forage Disaster Program (LFP) trigger requirements for a three-month payment for native pasture, improved pasture, and forage sorghum.

Eligible ranchers and livestock producers have until Jan. 30, 2012, to apply for Livestock Forage Program benefits for losses incurred during the 2011 crop year.

The Livestock Forage Disaster Program provides payments to eligible livestock producers that have suffered livestock grazing losses due to qualifying drought or fire. Fire losses apply only to federally managed rangeland. Eligible livestock include beef cattle, alpacas, buffalo, beefalo, dairy cattle, deer, elk, emus, equine, goats, llamas, poultry, reindeer, sheep, and swine. For losses due to drought, qualifying drought ratings are determined using the U.S. Drought Monitor located at http://www.drought.unl.edu/dm/monitor.html.

“It is imperative that livestock producers meet this deadline for disaster assistance as there are no late file provisions for LFP,” Svacina said. “I encourage eligible producers to contact their local FSA [Farm Service Agency] office to learn more about LFP eligibility requirements,” he said.

For more Livestock Forage Disaster Program information, call the Wilson County Farm Service Agency office at 830-393-3411. Information can also be obtained online at http://www.fsa.usda.gov.
