Farmers Encouraged to Document Livestock Losses Due to Adverse Weather

(MADISON, WISCONSIN), July 24, 2012 – With recent adverse weather conditions in some areas of the state, the Farm Service Agency (FSA) encourages farmers to document and report livestock losses to their local FSA county office.

Producers who suffered livestock losses as a direct result of an adverse weather event, such as extreme heat, may need to provide documentation of death if a FSA program for livestock losses is implemented in the 2012 Farm Bill.

FSA staff can provide producers with a list of potential acceptable loss documentation that includes proof of death, producer records and verifiable inventory documentation. Some of the acceptable documents may include rendering truck receipts, veterinary records, purchase records, production records, or private insurance records.

Adequate documentation must prove the death of eligible livestock occurred as a direct result of an eligible adverse weather event in the calendar year for which benefits are being requested. If adequate verifiable proof of death records documentation is not available, a livestock producer may provide reliable records, along with verifiable beginning and ending inventory, as proof of death.

Additional information in regard to livestock losses and potential documentation can be obtained by contacting your local county office. FSA program information is also available online at
