From the Desk of Hugh Hunter, CED

This is the time of year that we typically experience thunderstorms and producers are reminded to report livestock losses.  The Livestock Indemnity Program (LIP) provides assistance to eligible producers for livestock death losses in excess of normal mortality due to adverse weather.  If you suffer a loss of livestock due to lightening this season, you must file a notice of loss within 30 days of when the loss is apparent and provide this office with evidence of the loss by dated photos or a veterinary record.   You must also provide proof of normal mortality documentation. If you suffer a loss or have any questions, please contact the office.
