Cattle Group Disappointed Disaster Declaration Gives No Help To Producers

Cattle Group Disappointed Disaster Declaration Gives No Help To Producers

 

Federal Emergency Management officials announced late last week that President Obama approved a request for a disaster declaration for parts of Nebraska hit by the October blizzard.  State Cattlemen’s Association Executive Director Pete McClymont says that aid will go for infrastructure help but not directly to livestock producers.

McClymont says he’s disappointed there was no direct assistance for Nebraska’s cattle producers in the three farthest northwest counties who had significant losses from the October blizzard.

He says his group is working with their state’s Congressional delegation and farm bill conferees to get that farm bill completed so the indemnity payments can get out.
