CRP ground now open for haying, grazing
As drought continues to spread across cattle country, pastures are drying and grass is getting short in the hardest-hit areas. USDA’s Farm Service Agency announced changes for emergency haying and grazing of acres enrolled in the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), according to the Oklahoma Farm Report.
Producers located in a county that is designated as severe drought (D2) or greater on or after the last day of the primary nesting season are eligible for emergency haying and grazing on all eligible acres. Additionally, producers located in counties that were in a severe drought (D2) status any single week during the last eight weeks of the primary nesting season may also be eligible for emergency haying and grazing unless the FSA County Committee determines that forage conditions no longer warrant emergency haying and grazing.
