CRP Haying and Grazing
I attended a meeting today where one item of interest to all of us is that CRP ground is currently being released in certain counties in Illinois for haying and grazing. If your county is a D2 or higher on the drought monitor it is eligible to be released. Not all counties are released at this time, but if you have concerns about being able to feed your cattle, contact the local FSA office, It will cost 10% of you CRP payment. Haying will not be allowed till after August 1 and some revision of CRP plans may be needed.
