2019 Livestock Forage Program Signup Deadline January 30, 2020

Livestock producers in Greenville and Pickens Counties are eligible to apply for 2019 Livestock Forage Disaster Program (LFP) benefits on native pasture, improved pasture and forage sorghum due to the extreme drought designation made on October 8, 2019.

LFP provides compensation to eligible livestock producers who suffer grazing losses for covered livestock due to drought on privately owned or cash leased land or fire on federally managed land.

County committees can only accept LFP applications after notification is received by the National Office of qualifying drought or if a federal agency prohibits producers from grazing normal permitted livestock on federally managed lands due to qualifying fire.

Eligible livestock producers must complete a CCC-853 (LFP application) and the required supporting documentation no later than January 30, 2020, for program year 2019 losses.

Additional Information about the LFP Program, including eligible livestock, is available at your local FSA office or online at: www.fsa.usda.gov.

Please contact the Greenville and Pickens FSA Office at (864) 467-2798, extension 2, to set up an appointment and to discuss information that is required to complete the application.
