From the Carroll County FSA Executive Director Morgan Thornburg:
Dear Carroll County Producers:
1.) This is your final reminder! The certification deadline is July 15th. You have 4 more business days to report what you planted. Call us if you haven’t made your appointment yet. 765-564-2849 ext 2
2.) If you would like us to email or fax your Producer Prints (FSA-578 Report of Commodities) to your crop insurance agent, please feel free to let us know. I’m sure you would like to eliminate one less errand from all the things you have to do this summer. This will also save us on printing and paper costs. Please bring your crop insurance agent’s contact information (email or fax) to your appointment and we can send them the Producer Prints with your permission.
3.) The Livestock Indemnity Program (LIP) and Livestock Forage Program (LFP) are underway. We recently sent out letters to those of you who might benefit from the program. If you had livestock on pasture in 2012, please let us know and we can discuss LFP with you. We will need to know where the land is located and how many head were on the pasture.
If you had livestock losses due to weather-related causes going back to October 1st, 2011, please give us a call and we can discuss LIP with you.
It’s likely you will be eligible for disaster payments!
4.) If you live in Burlington, Carrollton, Democrat, or Washington townships, please consider running for the Carroll County Committee. For the 2014 election, we will be accepting nominations until August 1st. You have less than a month to get your nomination form to us! If you would like more information on the Carroll County Committee, please call or email Morgan to discuss it.
