Many South Dakotans are dealing with flood issues following recent blizzards and record-breaking rain.
Even though every producer tries their best to keep all animals born alive, there will always be death loss in livestock production systems.
The Livestock Indemnity Program (LIP) is designed to provide a payment to livestock owners or contract growers who experience excess livestock deaths due to adverse weather, including winter storms, floods, extreme cold and blizzards, eligible disease and eligible attacks.
When the winter snowfall begins to melt, oftentimes into ground already saturated from fall precipitation, significant areas in the state can face severe flooding in the spring.
SDSU Extension publishes the Livestock Newsletter to provide South Dakota producers, industry professionals and consumers with timely research-based recommendations.
