  • Our friends at the Farm Service Agency in Carrollton wanted me to remind farmers of this impending sign-up deadline. Produ-cers who suffered eligible livestock, honeybee or farm-raised fish losses have until August 1, 2014, to submit a notice of loss and application for payment under the Emergency Assistance for Livestock, Honeybees and Farm-raised Fish Program (ELAP). Time is short. You only have about fifteen (15) days left to submit a claim if you have suffered a loss.
