Disaster Aid Signup Dates Announced

USDA has announced signup start dates for farmers eligible for disaster aid.

Signup for the Livestock Compensation Program and Livestock Indemnity Program began Sept. 10. The programs will compensate livestock producers for feed and livestock losses due to natural disasters between Jan. 1, 2005 and Feb. 28, 2007.

Farm Service Agency offices will begin signing up producers for the Crop Disaster Program on Oct. 15. CDP provides funds to producers for quality and quantity losses as well as prevented plantings due to natural disasters for 2005, 2006 and 2007, provided the crops were planted before Feb. 28, 2007.
