Drought relief programs available in MO

Drought relief programs available in MO

The State Executive Director with Missouri’s Farm Service Agency says several relief programs are still available for producers as the drought continues.

Missouri has seen improvements in the U.S. Drought Monitor with recent rains, but more than half of the state remains in a drought as September begins.

Joe Aull tells Brownfield there’s an interest in the Livestock Forage Program because it compensates livestock producers for grazing losses and program eligibility is based on drought severity from the U.S.
