Producers who purchased additional feed or had winter grazing losses due to recent winter storms in Oregon are encouraged to contact their local FSA office to learn about the Emergency Assistance for Livestock, Honeybees and Farm-Raised Fish Program (ELAP). ELAP provides emergency assistance to eligible producers of livestock, honeybees and farm-raised fish who suffered losses because of disease, adverse weather or other conditions.

One category of ELAP assistance includes livestock feed and grazing losses due to extreme cold, heavier than usual snowfall and associated snow pack. ELAP assists producers with eligible feed losses that resulted from the costs of purchasing additional feed, above normal quantities, required to maintain eligible livestock during an eligible adverse weather or loss condition, and until additional livestock feed becomes available.

Eligible livestock owners must own eligible livestock that are being maintained for commercial use as part of a farming operation and:

During the 60 calendar days before the beginning date of the eligible adverse weather or loss condition, owned, cash-leased, purchased, entered into a contract to purchase or been a contract grower of eligible livestock;
Suffered a loss on land that is either:
Native or improved pastureland with a permanent vegetative cover; or
Planted to a crop specifically for the purpose of providing grazing for covered livestock.
Eligible Grazing Losses:
