Wilson County U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Farm Service Agency County Executive Director Stephen Svacina reminds eligible ranchers and livestock producers who had livestock losses or grazing losses during the 2011 crop year that the deadline for applying for benefits under the Livestock Forage Disaster Program and the Emergency Assistance for Livestock, Honeybees and Farm-Raised Fish Program (ELAP) is Monday, Jan. 30.

Livestock Forage Disaster Program

Livestock Forage Disaster Program provides payments to eligible livestock producers who have suffered livestock grazing losses due to qualifying drought or fire that occurred before Oct. 1. Fire losses apply only to federally managed rangeland. Eligible livestock under this program include beef cattle, alpacas, buffalo, beefalo, dairy cattle, deer, elk, emus, equine, goats, llamas, poultry, reindeer, sheep, and swine.

During the 2011 crop year, all Texas counties met the livestock forage disaster program trigger requirements for a three-month payment for native pasture, improved pasture, and forage sorghum. Eligible ranchers and livestock producers have until Monday, Jan. 30, to apply for benefits.

Emergency Assistance for Livestock

Emergency Assistance for Livestock provides emergency assistance to eligible producers of livestock, honeybees, and farm-raised fish who have losses due to disease, adverse weather, or other conditions, including losses due to blizzards and wildfires that occurred before Oct. 1, 2011. The Emergency Assistance for Livestock assistance is for losses not covered under other disaster assistance programs established by the 2008 Farm Bill.

Producers who suffered livestock grazing and feed losses must have filed a notice of loss no later than Oct. 31, and have until Monday, Jan. 30, to submit an application for payment for livestock death losses and livestock grazing and feed losses.

Program

requirements

In order to qualify for these livestock disaster assistance programs, the applicant must have purchased insurance coverage through the Farm Service Agency’s Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program or the Pasture, Rangeland, and Forage Insurance-Rainfall Index for Grazing program offered through the Risk Management Agency. Producers who meet the requirements of a socially disadvantaged, limited resource, or beginning farmer or rancher do not have to meet the Risk Management Purchase Requirement.

Program applicants should note that certain payment limitation and adjusted gross income eligibility requirements must be met in order to qualify for these programs.

For more information on the Farm Service Agency’s livestock disaster assistance programs, contact the Wilson County USDA Service Center at 830-393-3411. Information can also be obtained online at http://www.fsa.usda.gov.
