Livestock Indemnity Program signups underway

RICHMOND — The Richmond Farm Service Agency, (serving Madison and Estill County) is conducting Livestock Indemnity Program sign-ups for producers who suffered losses beginning Oct 1, 2011.

LIP provides compensation to producers who suffered livestock death losses in excess of normal mortality due to adverse weather and attacks by animals reintroduced into the wild by the federal government or are protected by federal law. These include wolves and avian predators.

LIP payments are equal to 75 percent of the market value of the applicable livestock on the day before the date of death as determined by the Secretary of Agriculture.

Eligible livestock includes: beef cattle, dairy cattle, bison, poultry, sheep, swine, horses and other livestock as determined by the secretary.

Applicants must provide adequate proof that the livestock deaths occurred as a direct result of an eligible adverse weather event for which benefits are being requested. The quantity and kind of livestock that died as a direct result of the disaster event be documented by: purchase records, veterinarian records, bank or other loan documents, rendering truck receipts or certificates, Federal Emergency Management Agency records, National Guard records, written contracts, production records, records assembled for tax purposes, property tax records, private insurance documents, and similar documents.

If you feel you are covered by one of these categories, call the Richmond FSA Office at 1024 Ival James, Blvd., Ste A-2, at 624-1981, Ext. 2.

  • 7-29 Nostalgia-Glenmore.jpg Paper boys learned life, business lessons

    I often flash back to the days from the mid to late 1930s when I was a paper boy.
    There were 10 or 12 of us who rolled out of bed at 5 a.m. every day, jumped on our bicycles and headed downtown to the Glyndon Hotel and picked up our papers for delivery.

    The following were included in last year’s exams and were answered by 16-year-old high school students. The answers are genuine, and we must remember that these youngsters will grow up to vote, marry and become parents. It’s a scary thought.

  • Can you believe such cool weather in mid July?

    Hi!
    Refreshing. That’s the word one TV weatherman described the upcoming days when temperatures will be in the 70s with virtually no humidity and lots of sunshine. Can you believe that in the middle of July? We can live with that, can’t we? We may even get close to setting a record for morning lows later this week. This has certainly been the year for strange weather!
