United States Drought Monitor
The website has two functions: to provide ranchers/farmers with a means of determining their eligibility
for the Livestock Forage Disaster Program (LFDP) based on the Drought Monitor triggers, and to provide the FSA with a means of determining
which counties in the country meet the LFDP triggers.
The site does not provide any details about grazing periods or forage types. The grazing period varies by location and forage type, so
be sure to use the grazing period dates that apply in your area. Contact your local FSA agent if you are unsure of the appropriate date range.
