Potter/Armstrong County U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Farm Service Agency (FSA) Executive Director Adam Acker reminds livestock producers who suffered grazing losses that occurred throughout 2020 due to drought to report their losses timely and to enroll in the Livestock Forage Disaster Program (LFP) by Jan. 30, 2021.
LFP provides compensation to eligible livestock producers who suffered grazing losses for covered livestock due to drought on privately-owned or cash-leased land or fire on federally-managed land. Producers in Potter and Armstrong County are eligible to apply for 2020 LFP benefits on native pasture, improved pasture, or forage sorghum. Livestock producers are encouraged to contact the Potter/Armstrong County FSA Office with any questions regarding specific forage crops that are eligible.
