Congressman Frank Lucas Responds to President Trump's Order to Allow Emergency CRP Grazing

Tue, 04 Apr 2017 15:26:39 CDT

Congressman Frank Lucas Responds to President Trump's Order to Allow Emergency CRP Grazing Congressman Frank Lucas released the following statement today after the US Department of Agriculture announced that President Trump has authorized emergency grazing on Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) lands in Oklahoma, Texas, and Kansas.



“I’d like to thank President Trump and the USDA for taking decisive action to help ranchers impacted by the devastating wildfires,” said Congressman Lucas. “The president’s authorization provides ranchers with much needed flexibility to prevent further losses and speed up the recovery process. While no one can replace the cattle lost in this disaster, I appreciate the responsiveness of the federal government in working with state and local officials to minimize damages as much as possible.”



Ranchers who need to graze on CRP lands previously enrolled in contracts with USDA should contact their local Farm Service Agency (FSA) office for more information.
