Livestock producers who have animal death losses due to the Texas floods can apply for federal aid. The Livestock Indemnity Program administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture provides benefits to livestock producers for livestock deaths in excess of normal mortality caused by adverse weather. To be eligible, a producer must have legally owned the eligible livestock on the day the livestock died.
Ranchers are encouraged to call the Farm Service Agency office in their county to set up appointments as deadlines approach. There is a 30-day window which a producer must establish the claim of loss with the local Farm Service Agency office.
