Deadline to apply for disaster assistance quickly approaches.

Published on: May 29, 2008

Livestock producers have until July 18, 2008, to enroll in the 2005 - 2007 Livestock Compensation Program and Livestock Indemnity Program. The programs provide aid to livestock producers who suffered eligible livestock or livestock feed losses between Jan. 1, 2005, and Dec. 31, 2007, because of a natural disaster.

LIP provides payments to eligible livestock owners and contract growers who incurred the death of livestock because of natural disaster while LCP provides payments to eligible livestock owners and cash lessees who suffered feed losses or increased feed costs because of a natural disaster.

More information about LCP and LIP is available at your local Farm Service Agency office, or click HERE.
