Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack provided a progress report on U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) disaster assistance programs July 9, announcing that the agency has processed 106,000 payments to farmers across the country who suffered livestock and grazing losses between October 2011 and passage of the 2014 Farm Bill.

The first payments were sent out to farmers and ranchers within two weeks of enrollment. The Agriculture Department estimated that roughly $2.5 billion would be provided in disaster relief to cover losses for this time period.

Producers are reminded the sign-up deadline for the Emergency Assistance for Livestock, Honeybees, and Farm-Raised Fish Program is Friday, Aug. 1.

This program provides assistance for livestock, honeybees, and farm-raised fish losses due to disease (including cattle tick fever), weather, wildfires, and colony collapse disorder, or for losses not covered under other disaster assistance programs established by the 2014 Farm Bill.

For information, visit the local Farm Service Agency office located at 1106 10th St. (U.S. 181) in Floresville or call 830-393-3411.
