Producers who have lost livestock due to excessively hot temperatures may have help available.
Scherrie Giamanco, state executive director of the Illinois Farm Service Agency, this week reminded producers that the Livestock Indemnity Program (LIP) provides financial assistance for livestock deaths as a direct result of adverse weather conditions.
"The hot, dry conditions that are widespread across Illinois may be good for the development of crops," Giamanco said. "However, they have proven to be detrimental for livestock producers."
