Pig in a barnThe United States Department of Agriculture is providing critical support to our nation’s farmers and ranchers through the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP). CFAP provides vital financial assistance to producers that gives them the ability to absorb sales decline and increased marketing costs associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Eligible livestock include pigs<120 lbs, hogs>120 lbs, lambs and yearlings (less than 2 years of age) and cattle.

CFAP payments for cattle are based on:

  • The actual sales between January 15, 2020, and April 15, 2020.
  • The highest owned inventory on a date selected by the producer between April 16, 2020, and May 14, 2020.

Producers need to categorize their cattle as follows for the application process:

Sold Inventory
Calves less than 600 pounds
Calves more than 600 pounds
Cows & bulls list as “all other cattle”
Slaughter cattle fed
Slaughter cattle mature

Call the Burke-McDowell-Caldwell FSA office if you have any questions or to make a phone appointment at 828-439-9727, ext 2. Producers may also visit the FSA website. Sign up ends on August 28, 2020.
