California’s Livestock Forage Disaster Program

California producers applying for assistance under the Livestock Forage Disaster Program (LFP) must apply by December 10.
USDA Farm Service Agency State Director Val Dolcini reminds those eligible that all losses from the 2008 calendar year by the deadline. Any losses that are from the 2009 calendar year must be made by January 30, 2010.
The program provides payments for livestock producers who had livestock grazing losses from drought or fire. The program only applies to federally managed rangeland.
“It is imperative that livestock producers meet these deadlines for disaster assistance as there are no late file provisions for LFP,” said Dolcini. “To insure a smooth application process, producers should have all required supporting documentation with them at the time they visit our office to apply for benefits.”
