Livestock producers in Washington and Austin Counties may be eligible for assistance from the Livestock Forage Disaster Program for grazing losses this year due to drought.
Eligible livestock include alpacas, beef cattle, dairy cattle, deer, equine, goats, llamas, sheep, and other animals that have been or would have been grazing the eligible grazing land or pastureland during the normal grazing period.
An application for payment and supporting documentation are required. To speed up the application process, producers are encouraged to collect records documenting their losses. Applications for 2019 losses will be accepted through January 30, 2020.
