Help Available for Producers Due to Extreme Drought Conditions

Several Tennessee counties have been designated as D-3 or under extreme drought conditions on the latest USDA drought monitor.

Producers in certain counties are eligible for drought assistance payments from USDA FSA. Producers in Bledsoe, Grundy, Hamilton, Marion, and Sequatchie Counties should contact their local FSA offices for information on receiving assistance.

Producers will need to provide data on the number of adult cows and bulls in your herd, the number of animals over and animals under 500lbs if they are weaned. Depending on circumstances, you may be eligible for payments on animals sold earlier in the year. Sheep, goats, horses and mules are also eligible.
