Farm Service Agency officials were out Wednesday surveying damage in Cedar County Nebraska following Tuesday’s Tornados that ripped through the County. FSA Director Angela Teboe says widespread damage occurred to corn, soybeans and alfalfa as well as to farm buildings, ag equipment and machinery and irrigation pivots as well. She says some livestock also died as a result of the storm
Teboe says there likely will be some farmers who will replant.
Teboe says those considering re planting should check with their crop insurance agent. She says losses should be reported to her office as well as to crop insurance agents. Teboe says those with livestock losses within 30 days need to report to FSA so they can access the Livestock Indemnity program. NRCS should be contacted for assistance in burying dead livestock.
