USDA authorizes emergency haying and grazing of CRP acres for South Dakota counties

USDA authorizes emergency haying and grazing of CRP acres for South Dakota counties
 

    The USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) has authorized emergency haying and grazing use of Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) acres. 
    The emergency haying authorization for South Dakota counties became effective June 16, 2017, and ends 60 calendar days from the authorization date, not to exceed August 31, 2017. This declaration includes Lyman County. The emergency grazing authorization for South Dakota counties became effective June 23, 2017, and ends 90 calendar days from the authorization date, not to exceed Sept.30, 2017. 
    Eligible producers who are interested in emergency haying or grazing of CRP must request approval before haying or grazing eligible acreage. It is also important for producers to obtain a modified conservation plan from the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) that includes haying and grazing requirements. 
    The eligible CRP acreage is limited to acres located within the approved county. Eligible producers who are interested in haying or grazing CRP under the emergency authorization and current CRP participants who choose to provide land for haying or grazing to an eligible livestock producer, must first request approval to hay or graze eligible acreage and obtain a modified conservation plan from the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) to include haying or grazing requirements.
    Since some SD counties are authorized for emergency haying and grazing, producers are reminded that the same CRP acreage cannot be both hayed and/or grazed at the same time. For example, if 50 percent of a field or contiguous field is hayed, the remaining unhayed 50 percent cannot be grazed; it must remain unhayed and ungrazed for wildlife. In addition, participants are limited to one hay cutting and are not permitted to sell any of the hay.  
    For more information and to request approval for emergency haying and grazing of CRP acres contact your local County FSA office. 
    USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) Online Hay and Grazing Acres Locator Tool
    FSA’s Hay Net website www.fsa.usda.gov/haynet is the “go to” online resource for agricultural producers to list information concerning the need for hay and grazing acres or the availability of hay and grazing acres.
    If, due to extenuating circumstances, producers are in need of hay and/or grazing acres to support livestock, please use Hay Net to post an advertisement seeking these resources. Likewise, landowners who have hay and/or grazing acres available for livestock producers should post a Hay Net advertisement as well.
