Livestock Disaster Help Available Through EQIP

Livestock Disaster Help Available Through EQIP

 

USDA Under Secretary Michael Scuse announced Tuesday that conservation assistance is available from NRCS for those affected by the October blizzard.   Scuse made the announcement in Rapid City while meeting with western South Dakota producers.

 

Jeff Zimprich, State Conservationist says disaster financial assistance is available through the EQIP program and will reach producers faster than LIP dollars.

 

It’s unknown how much money will be available through EQIP.  However, it can be used for reestablishment of grazing and conservation practices…as well as livestock burials to protect water quality.

 

Producers need to sign an application to be ready for the next funding cut off and application ranking date which is November 15. Signup is continuous and producers can get early-start waivers.
