Blizzard payments for ranchers could come in April
MITCHELL, S.D. — Ranchers could have checks as soon as April from farm bill disaster programs that will pay them for livestock losses from the October blizzard and the 2012 drought, Sen. John Thune said Wednesday.
“We hope the checks start to head out sometime in April. I certainly hope that’s the case,” Thune, a South Dakota Republican, told reporters, saying the U.S. Department of Agriculture should be able to streamline and expedite its normal process.
