Signup for the Farm Service Agency’s (FSA) Livestock Indemnity Program (LIP), began on July 13 and will continue through Sept. 13, 2009.

LIP is a new disaster program for livestock producers and contract growers. LIP compensates livestock owners and contract growers for death losses in excess of normal mortality due to adverse weather, including losses due to hurricanes, floods, blizzards, disease, wildfires, extreme heat and extreme cold. Eligible losses must have occurred on or after Jan. 1, 2008, and before Oct. 1, 2011.

Contact the FSA office at 234-2646, 103 Rodgers Park Dr., for more information on filing a notice of loss.
