Wisconsin Farm Service Agency (FSA) reminds producers in counties eligible for emergency grazing and haying on Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) acres of the deadline dates to remove cattle or hay from the CRP acres.
Producers with emergency grazing authorization must remove cattle no later than September 30, 2012. For those producers haying the authorized acreage, all haying must be completed and removed no later than August 31, 2012.
CRP participants who participated in the emergency grazing and haying must report the number of acres actually hayed or grazed no later than September 30, 2012, and reports are subject to spot check by USDA. In addition, participants must report the tonnage harvested or the number of livestock grazed by September 30.
For questions on emergency haying and grazing or for information about other programs, producers should contact the Marathon County FSA office at 715-848-2330 or the FSA website: www.fsa.usda.gov.
