On April 15, 2014, the sign-up for Livestock Disaster Assistance began under the 2014 Farm Bill. The re-authorized disaster assistance programs will retroactively cover losses from 2012 and 2013.

The Livestock Forage Disaster Program (LFP) will assist producers with grazing losses to drought occurring during the normal grazing period since Oct. 1, 2011. LFP also will compensate for grazing losses caused by fires during the normal grazing period on federally managed land. The normal grazing period for counties in the Panhandle and North Central Sandhills is from May 1 through Oct. 27. Signup for 2012, 2013 and 2014 disasters goes until January 30, 2015.
