The Farm Service Agency is offering producers a program that will help with water relief. FSA agent, Kyle Meyer says the Emergency Conservation Program provides cost share assistance to alleviate immediate water needs for livestock effected by drought.
Livestock that’s used for any other purpose than than food and fiber is not eligible for assistance. Also, there must have been an adequate water supply available prior to the drought, which has since dried up. Contact a local FSA office for more information or to sign up.
