Livestock and the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program

You may be eligible for financial assistance. The application process is simple and your USDA service center can help.

Many small sheep producers and farmers are not eligible for the recent government programs and loans. HOWEVER you may be eligible for Livestock and the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program. It's not a lot of money: but it's your money.

"The Coronavirus Food Assistance Program, or CFAP, provides vital financial assistance to producers of agricultural commodities who have suffered a five-percent-or-greater price decline or who had losses due to market supply chain disruptions due to COVID-19 and face additional significant market costs. USDA is accepting applications now through August 28, 2020."

Large conferences are still on-hold. However, small workshops are starting to be planned. We will keep you updated. 

For now, we have a wealth of online learning opportunities from various universities and associations. From FAMACHA to Nutrition, Livestock Guardian Dogs to Marketing Meat, and so much more: there is valuable information waiting for you.
