Ranchers in the Dakotas whose herds were devastated by an early October blizzard can begin signing up for federal disaster aid next week.
The federal Agriculture Department says farmers and ranchers can start signing up for disaster assistance programs authorized by the new farm bill on Tuesday, April 15. They include the Livestock Indemnity Program, which could cover as much as two-thirds of a rancher's loss.
The snow storm that hit Oct. 4-5 killed more than 43,000 cattle and other livestock in South Dakota and more than 1,000 farm animals in North Dakota.
