Video: Livestock Indemnity Program

Oct 25, 2013

Farmers and ranchers affected by a recent snowstorm in South Dakota, Nebraska and Wyoming therefore lack that federal assistance. Brad Lubben, UNL Extension public policy specialist, describes the LIP and talks about whether or not producers can expect LIP coverage when Congress passes a new Farm Bill.
