Officials Ready For Ranchers Seeking Federal Aid

Government officials in the Dakotas say they're ready for ranchers to start signing up for federal disaster aid to help them recover from an early October blizzard.

Signup begins Tuesday for the Livestock Indemnity Program and also the Livestock Forage Disaster Program. Both were authorized in the new farm bill.

South Dakota Farm Service Agency Executive Director Craig Schaunaman tells The Bismarck Tribune that he's got extra help on board and overtime authorized to get paperwork processed after the biggest livestock disaster in recent memory. An estimated 43,000 cattle and other livestock died.

The blizzard also killed more than 1,000 cattle in North Dakota. Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says in a statement that ranchers who need help applying for disaster aid can contact the North Dakota Mediation Service for assistance.
