Disaster Assistance Now Available for Oklahoma Ranchers Experiencing Livestock Losses

Wed, 17 Feb 2021 14:56:42 CST

Disaster Assistance Now Available for Oklahoma Ranchers Experiencing Livestock Losses The Livestock indemnity Program (LIP) provided by the USDA Farm Service Agency provides assistance to you for livestock deaths in excess of normal mortality caused by adverse weather, disease and attacks by animals reintroduced into the wild by the federal government or protected by federal law.

For disease losses, FSA county committees can accept veterinarian certifications that livestock deaths were directly related to adverse weather and unpreventable through good animal husbandry and management.

For 2021livestock losses,you must file a notice within 30 calendar days of when the loss is first apparent. You then must provide the following supporting documentation to your local FSA office no later than 60 calendar days after the end of the calendar year in which the eligible loss condition occurred.

*Proof Of death documentation, I.E., pictures with dates
*Proof of beginning inventory
*Proof of normal mortality documentation
*Copy of growers contracts, if applicable.

USDA has established normal mortality rates for each type and weight range of eligible livestock, i.e., adult beef cow=1.5% and nonadult beef cattle (less than 400 pounds) = 3%. These established percentages reflect losses that are considered expected or typical under "normal' conditions.

In Addition to filing a notice of your loss, you must also submit an application for payment by March 1, 2022.

For more questions or for more information, contact the Oklahoma FSA office at 405 752 1130
