Livestock Indemnity Program May Assist with Severe Winter Weather Livestock Losses

The Livestock Indemnity Program (LIP) provides assistance to eligible producers for livestock deaths in excess of normal mortality caused by adverse weather, including losses due to blizzards or extreme cold.

Eligible livestock owners or contract growers must file a notice of loss with FSA within 30 calendar days of when the livestock loss is first apparent. For disease losses, FSA county committees can accept veterinarian certifications that livestock deaths were directly related to adverse weather and unpreventable through good animal husbandry and management.

Be alerted about local emergencies in Otoe County and other important community news by signing up for the Emergency Alert Program. This emergency notification system enables your emergency service providers to supply you with critical information quickly in a variety of situations, such as severe weather, unexpected road closures, missing persons, and evacuation of buildings or neighborhoods.
The University of Nebraska was chartered on February 15, 1869 and charged with its land-grant mission of public education and service to Nebraska. In 2019, we mark a 150-year legacy of improving the quality of life for Nebraska and beyond.
