USDA deadline for livestock disaster assistance is January 31
The Agriculture Department has issued a reminder to ranchers and livestock producers that the deadline for applications for financial assistance through the Livestock Forage Disaster Program (LFP) for 2021 grazing losses due to a qualifying drought or fire is January 31.
“Ongoing, widespread drought conditions have resulted in significant financial losses for agricultural producers, causing stress across rural America,” said Farm Service Agency (FSA) Administrator Zach Ducheneaux. “I want to emphasize that the FSA is here to help offset these economic hardships and help producers rebuild with resilience. I’d like to encourage producers who suffered 2021 grazing losses to file their LFP applications as soon as possible to expedite payments. Timely filing is doubly important this year, as information gathered may be used to deliver upcoming disaster assistance.”
For the 2021 program year, 901 counties in 26 states and territories have met drought severity levels that trigger LFP eligibility. More than $473.1 million has been paid, to date, to livestock producers eligible for 2021 LFP.

Cattle efficiently convert plant matter into natural protein. Much of this is grass, which can’t be consumed by humans.
