Ranchers Hit by Wildfires Updated on Programs to Help with Livestock Losses and Fence Repair at Harper County Meeting

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 06:24:40 CDT

Ranchers Hit by Wildfires Updated on Programs to Help with Livestock Losses and Fence Repair at Harper County Meeting Over two hundred ranchers gathered at the Harper County Fairgrounds in Buffalo on Monday to learn about their assistance options two weeks after wildfires burned hundreds of thousands of acres of rangeland- killing cattle, destroying or damaging fences and water facilities and burning all available forage and hay.


The Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association sponsored the meeting- and officials from the Farm Service Agency, the Natural Resource Conservation Service, the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture and the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Foundation all offered information about programs that can help with cash to help offset the loss of cows and calves and fences and forage.


Lyndal Stoup, Acting State FSA Executive Director, talked with those gathered about several key programs- including one that can quickly provide cash to producers who suffered the loss of a large percentage of their beef cow herds. Stoup described the threshold levels and requirements to qualify for the Livestock Indemnity Program- and members of his team provided details of other key programs available from the USDA through the Farm Service Agency.


Stoup talked with Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays about the programs available to those who were hit hard by the wildfires- click on the LISTEN BAR at the bottom of our story to hear their conversation.


A common thread for all help available to ranchers- both from the government as well as private sources- cmmunicate with officials about your loss and then document those losses.
