We told you last week that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) had announced a new program for certain livestock and poultry producers, called the Pandemic Livestock Indemnity Program (PLIP). This was designed to help producers who suffered losses during the Covid-19 pandemic due to insufficient access to processing and the cost of depopulation and disposal of those animals. Signup for this program begins today (July 20) at your local Farm Service Agency (FSA) office. FSA Administrator Zach Ducheneaux has more details about PLIP.
PLIP signup runs through September 17, 2021.
