Livestock producers now have until May 15 to use CRP acreage to alleviate the impacts of flooding according to Aaron Krauter, North Dakota State Executive Director of USDA’s Farm Service Agency. This is an extension of the original deadline of April 30.
Livestock producers may move livestock to CRP if their livestock areas and fences have been lost due to flooding. Requests must first be filed at the local Farm Service Agency office. Producers must provide documentation of flooding conditions including, but not limited to, photographs of flooded livestock areas to support their request.
There will be no reduction in the CRP payment for those contracts on which the activity is authorized.
