Financial assistance for fences lost

The Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association reminds ranchers whose fences were lost or damaged in the wildfires to apply for the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Emergency Conservation Program funding at their local Farm Service Agency office.

Although some ranchers may have already started rebuilding, those who haven’t should apply immediately, before any rebuilding begins -- or risk forfeiting program eligibility.

USDA Texas Farm Service Agency Acting Executive Director James Douglass said that producers should still submit an application at their local Farm Service Agency office even though there is a current backlog of Emergency Conservation Program funds. The Farm Service Agency district directors can waive the start date for beginning reconstructive work on a case-by-case basis, allowing producers to start repairing fences before funds are secured without jeopardizing program eligibility.

Conservation problems that existed before the disaster are not eligible for Emergency Conservation Program assistance. Program participants can receive financial assistance for up to 75 percent of the cost to implement approved emergency conservation practices.

To find out if your county is accepting Emergency Conservation Program applications or to request a start date waiver, contact the local Farm Service Agency office at 830-393-3411.
