Farmers Urged To Keep Record Of Disaster Damages

Posted: Updated:
MANHATTAN -

The Department of Agriculture urges livestock producers to closely track any livestock and feed losses during disasters like flooding.

During the recent flooding, many ranchers had to quickly move their livestock to higher ground.

Currently, the emergency conservation program is available to help farmers with losses.

USDA experts said the 2014 Farm Bill will provide new programs for farmers including ones to help during disasters. Those programs could be available as soon as April 15.

Right now, farmers experiencing flooding are trying to change the direction of the water run-off, so things like erosion do not occur.

"It's a problem of mitigating and getting around the problems that are being caused by the additional moisture that we are receiving," said Billy Denison, USDA Gallatin and Park Counties Executive Director.

Denison said if the flooding happened a couple weeks from now, more farmers and ranchers would have been affected.
