Emergency haying, grazing authorized in 53 counties Tell North Platte what you think

Due to extreme drought conditions across Nebraska, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced Monday that emergency haying and grazing will be allowed on land in the Conservation Reserve Program.

The counties approved for emergency haying and grazing are Antelope, Arthur, Banner, Boone, Box Butte, Boyd, Cedar, Chase, Cheyenne, Clay, Cuming, Custer, Dakota, Dawes, Dawson, Deuel, Dixon, Dundy, Franklin, Frontier, Furnas, Garden, Garfield, Gosper, Greeley, Harlan, Hayes, Hitchcock, Holt, Howard, Kearney, Keith, Kimball, Lincoln, Logan, Loup, McPherson, Madison, Merrick, Morrill, Nance, Nuckolls, Perkins, Phelps, Pierce, Platte, Red Willow, Scotts Bluff, Sheridan, Sioux, Stanton, Valley, Webster, and Wheeler. The authorization for 2013 begins July 16, 2013 for both emergency haying and emergency grazing.

The Nebraska Cattlemen are very appreciative of USDA’s response to the extreme drought conditions that many Nebraska farmers and ranchers are currently facing, the organization said.

Prior to haying and grazing, producers must go to their local FSA office to sign the applicable forms.
