Disaster Assistance for Cattlemen and Cattlewomen Affected by Hurricanes

Mon, 12 Oct 2020 14:03:33 CDT

Disaster Assistance for Cattlemen and Cattlewomen Affected by Hurricanes The Louisiana Cattlemen’s Association (LCA), in cooperation with the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA), have worked closely with USDA to ensure cattle producers in the state of Louisiana have access to needed disaster resources to help with losses incurred as a result of this year’s devastating hurricanes.

“It was a major victory to have mosquito death loss included in the Livestock Indemnity Program. Through our coordination with NCBA and USDA Louisiana, producers who dealt with crippling death loss due to the onslaught of mosquitoes now have some protection,” said Dustiy Pendergrass, LCA executive vice president. “In order to fit the requirements of LIP, the animal must have been lost within 30 days of the weather event. We already know of roughly 200 head were lost to the mosquito bloom in September.”

At present, there are several programs that may help provide relief from losses incurred as a result of this year’s devastation. Local USDA Farm Service Agency offices can provide specific information about qualification and application for relief.

LCA and NCBA will continue to work to provide relief and funding for producers in the weeks and months ahead, and there are some programs already available. Those programs include:
• Emergency Conservation Program – Provides cost-share at 75 percent to remove storm debris, repair fences, and repair conservation practices.
• Livestock indemnity program – Pays for cattle that died due to the storm or were injured and sold at a loss.
• Emergency livestock assistance program – Pays for feed or hay when grazing was lost.
• Emergency loans

Producers who have questions about these programs are encouraged to contact their local FSA office or the Louisiana Cattlemen’s Association office at 225-343-3491. USDA has also compiled additional resources on their website here:
