Livestock Assistance Deadline Approaching
By Drew Adams
Murray, KY – Kentucky producers have a limited amount of time to receive assistance if they've experienced less than ideal yields. Producers of livestock, honeybees and farm-raised fish have until January 30th to apply for emergency assistance if they sustained losses due to disease, adverse weather or other conditions. The program is designed to offset losses which aren't recovered under other disaster assistance programs established by the 2008 Farm Bill. The U.S. Agriculture Department's Farm Service Agency is authorized to spend up to $50 million per year nationwide to provide emergency relief for eligible losses.
