Mr. John Fuston, State Director of U.S. Department of Agriculture Farm Service Agency (FSA) in Texas, reminds Texas livestock producers they have until July 18, 2008, to enroll in the 2005-2007 Livestock Compensation Program (LCP). Sign-up began on September 10, 2007. The program provides aid to livestock producers who suffered eligible livestock feed losses between January 1, 2005 and December 31, 2007, because of a natural disaster.
"The deadline to enroll in the 2005-2007 Livestock Compensation Program is rapidly approaching," said Mr. Fuston. "I encourage all eligible producers to enroll soon because sign-up ends on July 18, 2008."
LCP provides payment to eligible livestock owners and cash lessees who suffered feed losses or increased feed costs because of a natural disaster.
