North Dakota Stockmen’s Association Executive Vice President Julie Ellingson urges ranchers to look into the Livestock Indemnity Program, which compensate producers for a portion of the losses that happened during the storm. “There’s a 30-day window to file a notice of loss. Some of the documentation that would be required include beginning inventory like calving books or pregnancy check records, as well as evidence of livestock death like photos with dates and insurance claims.” More information on the Livestock Indemnity Program can be found on NDSA’s website or by contacting your local FSA office.
