Drought Monitor Triggers

The Livestock Forage Disaster Program (LFDP) looks at four different triggers based on the Drought Monitor data at the county level. These include:

Criteria Available Assistance (2014 Criteria) Available Assistance (2008 Criteria)
D2 for at least 8 weeks during the grazing period 1 monthly payment 1 monthly payment
D3 at any time during the grazing period 3 monthly payments 2 monthly payments
D3 for at least 4 weeks during the grazing period 4 monthly payments 3 monthly payments
D4 at any time during the grazing period 4 monthly payments 3 monthly payments
D4 for at least 4 weeks during the grazing period 5 monthly payments ---

Note that meeting any one Drought Monitor criteria does not automatically enroll you in the LFDP program. You must still complete all required materials as required by the FSA.
