Details of Farm Bill sign-up to be provided at community gatherings in South Dakota

Ranch families are invited to attend any of four community gatherings to be held in Eagle Butte, Union Center, Hermosa, and Interior on April 14 and 15. At each meeting, a free meal will be followed by presentations from Farm Service Agency officials with details about the Livestock Disaster Program application process set to begin April 15.

FSA officials will provide details about reporting and documentation requirements and information about how the disaster programs will be administered, and will answer questions from producers.

The 2014 Farm Bill signed into law fully funded Livestock Disaster Programs, including the Livestock Indemnity Program and Livestock Forage Program that provide financial support to producers who suffered losses in the October blizzard and droughts of 2012 and 2013.

Community Gatherings will be held at the following locations:
