Emergency grazing extended in Montana, and other news from August 30th Montana Farm Services Administration bulletin

Only five Montana counties (out of 56) were not authorized for emergency haying and grazing of CRP: Liberty, Lincoln, Mineral, Sanders and Toole counties are the outliers.

For all the rest, yesterday was the deadline for emergency CRP haying.

However, emergency CRP grazing normally has a deadline of September 30th and this year that’s been extended to November 30th. There are some types of CRP that still can’t be grazed, and in all cases a request must be submitted to the local FSA office and written approval of the request received before any emergency grazing is allowed.

Six Montana counties (Beaverhead, Big Horn, Custer, Madison, Rosebud and Yellowstone) were designated as primary disaster areas by Secretary of Agriculture Vilsack.

And there was some other paperwork stuff in that bulletin, changes to IRS forms 1099-G & 1099-MISC, and reminders to all livestock producers to keep good records of how they were affected by the drought.
