We had a really bad winter on livestock and lost a lot of cattle. The FSA office is taking applications for these weather-related losses.
People are beginning to hear about this opportunity, and I thought it would be good to have a little bit about the programs in this column.
Livestock disaster program enrollment opened on April 15, 2014.
These disaster programs are authorized by the 2014 Farm Bill as permanent programs and provide retroactive authority to cover losses that occurred on or after Oct. 1, 2011.
