NDA Helping Ag Producers Recover Around Pilger

N-D-A Director Greg Ibach says widespread storms have led to the loss of crops and livestock statewide. Specifically in the Pilger area. Ibach urges producers to keep accurate records of livestock losses, whether that be photographs, receipts, or third party verification by a renderer, veterinarian, or local extension educator. Also please submit that information, along with crop loss information, to N-D-A, as that information will be useful when seeking federal aid.

To properly dispose of the livestock, Ibach says they are working with local renderers to make sure no one facility is overloaded, and also the Nebraska Department of environmental quality to do some on-site composting where necessary. Contact the Ag Department with any questions at 1-800-831-0550.
