A lot of the West is experiencing severe drought conditions and has been declared a disaster area by the Secretary of Agriculture.  Many producers may be making decisions about selling their livestock because of these conditions.  There are special tax provisions for sales of livestock more than normal because of weather conditions.  This webinar will provide the basic issues and allow participants to ask questions.  The webinar is free but requires registration.  

Register in advance for this webinar:https://usu-edu.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_BnMIQmTVQCCj6teRw2vCIQ

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.  For questions, please contact Ruby Ward (ruby.ward@usu.edu).


What is farmstress.us?

Farmstress

Funded by a USDA Farm and Ranch Stress Assistance Network grant, the Western Regional Agricultural Stress Assistance Program is composed of lead agencies representing 13 states and 4 territories. WRASAP recognizes that high levels of stress have been present in our agricultural communities. Causes include unstable finances, carrying the pressure of multigenerational farm lineage, injury, chronic/acute illness, adverse weather and climate change, and recent COVID-19 stressors. We want to make sure that you, your family, and people you work with have access to the resources needed, when they’re needed.
