Grazing Extension To Be Requested
09/13/2013

Kansas is asking the U.S. Department of Agriculture to extend emergency haying and grazing on Conservation Reserve Program land.
 
     State Agriculture Secretary Dale Rodman urged the agency in a letter Thursday to grant an extension through Nov. 30. The same step was taken during last year's drought without landowners incurring penalties in the form of a rental payment reduction.
 
     Rodman says that while parts of Kansas have benefited from needed rainfall, many portions of the state remain in a severe drought condition.
 
     There are 2.15 million acres enrolled in CRP in Kansas.
 
     Rodman says in a news release that allowing ranchers to continue accessing that forage could be the difference between maintaining a cow herd or facing liquidation.
