USDA Extends Emergency Grazing Assistance

USDA announced a two-month extension for emergency grazing on Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) acres.  This is to free up forage and feed for producers suffering from the drought.

USDA announced a two-month extension for emergency grazing on Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) acres.  This is to free up forage and feed for producers suffering from the drought.  USDA is permitting farmers and ranchers in drought-stricken states, who have been approved for emergency grazing, to extend grazing on CRP land through Nov. 30, 2012, without incurring an additional CRP rental payment reduction. The period allowed for emergency grazing normally lasts through Sept. 30. The extension applies to general CRP practices.  Producers must submit a request to their Farm Service Agency (FSA) county office indicating the acreage to be grazed.
