Drought program offered

Farmers can now sign up for the USDA Disaster Assistance program at no cost after the program was restored by the 2014 Farm Bill, according to Jake Reid, county executive director for the Van Buren County Farm Service Agency.

Depending on the size and type of farm or ranch operation, eligible producers can enroll in one of four programs administered by the Farm Service Agency.

For information about those programs contact Reid at (870) 448-3181 Ext. 2.
