2016 Livestock Forage Disaster Program Triggered in 3 Montana Counties


Livestock Producers in Carter, Fallon and Powder River Counties are eligible to apply for 2016 LFP Benefits! Jan. 30, 2017 Application Deadline


LFP provides compensation to eligible livestock producers in qualifying counties for drought on dryland pasture. Eligible livestock producers must own or lease dryland pasture physically located in a qualifying county and livestock must use this ground during the normal grazing period for the county. Carter, Fallon and Powder River Counties have met the qualifying drought criteria for 2016 in Montana. Eligible livestock producers with land physically located in Carter County may qualify for four monthly payments under LFP; producers with land in Fallon and Powder River may qualify for one monthly payment. Producers must complete an application and provide supporting documentation for 2016 losses by Jan. 30, 2017. Please contact the local FSA office ASAP to schedule an appointment to begin the application process.

LFP also provides assistance to eligible livestock producers who suffer a grazing loss due to fire on Federally-managed land.  Producers who are notified by a Federal agency that they cannot graze their permitted number of livestock or permitted number of days due to a fire should contact the county office for assistance.
