Nebraska Cattlemen Reminding Beef And Cattle Producers Affected By Fires To Apply For Aid

LINCOLN – Leadership within the Nebraska Cattlemen Disaster Relief Fund will be accepting applications for aid from beef and cattle producers.

According to a release from the Nebraska Cattlemen, this will be for those affected by all fires reported through the Nebraska Emergency Management Association (NEMA) Watch Center.

Applications will be accepted until September 30, 2022.

Applicants may submit documentation for agriculture-related expenses not paid for by insurance or other governmental sources related to fencing, pens, agricultural structure repair, feed, livestock removal or additional necessary agricultural-related costs directly associated with rebuilding from the natural disaster.

Applicants must demonstrate that expenses/losses incurred were related to agriculture production and directly caused by recent wildfires in the state of Nebraska.
