COVID-19: Farmers, this should help when applying for payments

As you likely know by now, farmers were able to begin applying this week for direct financial assistance from the federal government to help offset losses caused by the pandemic.

While most parts of the two-page application are relatively simple to complete, a couple of areas are not as clear.

DBA wants to make sure you have what you need to receive the full assistance being made available. So, we created some supplemental instructions, particularly related to cull cattle and dairy bull calves as well as corn silage.

Below are resources we think will be helpful:

  1. Supplemental instructions

  2. A new episode of our Dairy Stream podcast featuring Sandy Chalmers from the Wisconsin Farm Service Agency. Local FSA offices are processing the applications. Even if your farm has completed the application, Sandy shares some important considerations regarding your application.

  3. The main USDA application form

  4. Depending on your business, you might need additional forms.

The application period is open until Aug. 28. Please reach out to our team if you have questions. 

Thank you.
