Livestock indemnity program-public service announcement
The Livestock Indemnity Program (LIP) provides compensation to eligible livestock producers that have incurred livestock death losses due to adverse weather.
If you suffered a loss of livestock due to the June 17 tornadoes or any other adverse weather condition, you may call the Farm Service Agency to file the Notice of Loss.
Livestock owners and contract growers who suffer losses must file a notice of loss within 30 calendar days of when the loss is apparent. The program requires documentation to show the losses. Keep track of rendering receipts, photographs, etc. that would be able to support the losses.
If you need assistance in documenting the livestock deaths contact the East Otter Tail FSA office at 218-346-4260
