Program Description

The Agricultural Act of 2014 makes the LFP a permanent program and provides retroactive authority to cover eligible losses back to Oct. 1, 2011. LFP provides compensation to eligible livestock producers that have suffered grazing losses for covered livestock on land that is native or improved pastureland with permanent vegetative cover or is planted specifically for grazing. The grazing losses must be due to a qualifying drought condition during the normal grazing period of the county. LFP also provides compensation to eligible livestock producers that have suffered grazing losses on rangeland managed by a federal agency, if the eligible livestock producer is prohibited by the Federal agency from grazing the normal permitted livestock on the managed rangeland due to a qualifying fire. More information found at USDA/FSA.
