Storm Losses – Livestock Indemnity Program

From Carl Duley at UW-Extension. Just a quick reminder.  It seems currently there are not a lot of resources to help out farmers suffering from storm losses.  The one program that is there is the livestock indemnity program.  The thing is you MUST contact FSA within 30 days of the incident.  You are then eligible for livestock losses for up to 60 days following the incident.  The program pays above current market prices for livestock that died or had to be euthanized or culled due to injury directly related to the storm.   They are also collecting milk production loss, dumped milk, and maybe a few other things, for loss assessment.  Don’t wait.  Call or email FSA 608-685-4454  email[email protected].
