Wool, mohair losses for 2000 being taken at local FSA office

The McCulloch County Farm Service Agency is now accepting applications for the 2000 wool and mohair Market Loss Assistance Program. This program is available to wool and mohair producers who sheared wool or mohair from Jan. 1, 2000 through Dec. 31, 2000. Producers must have owned the livestock at least 30 days prior to shearing. Sign up began March 5 and will continue until April 13. Funding is limited and final rate cannot be determined until a nationwide upload and rate calculations are completed. Payment rates are estimated at $0.40 per pound for wool and mohair. Producers need to submit documentation such as warehouse weight sheets, confirming the amount of wool and mohair shorn in 2000. Producers should file applications for payment at the headquarter county office where the producer’s FSA records are maintained. Applications submitted after April 13 will not be accepted since late file procedures do not apply to this program. For more information, contact the McCulloch County Farm Service Agency at 200 East 11th Street in Brady or call (915) 597-1512, option 2, or visit the FSA website at http://www.fsa. usda.gov
