Sign ups for livestock disaster assistance underway

The 2014 Farm Bill created several disaster programs that will be permanent and will provide retroactive coverage for losses that occurred on or after Oct. 1, 2011.

The covered disaster dates for Franklin County are Aug. 2, 2011 through Oct. 1, 2011, November 4, 2011 through Jan. 3, 2012, and May 3, 2013 through July 2, 2013. See the May 22 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald for programs for which eligible producers can apply.
