Grazing of CRP
Cass County has been released for emergency haying and grazing of CRP acreage. Eligible producers must visit the office to identify areas to be hayed or grazed and obtain approval before starting any activities. No grazing or cutting for hay can begin until August 2. The CRP annual rental payment will be reduced by 10% for the number of acres hay or grazed. For haying, 50% of each field or contiguous fields must not be harvested. For grazing, this figure is 25% or can be 0 if stocking rate is reduced. Call the FSA office at 217-452-7781 for more information.
