The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s second round of coronavirus relief payments provides much-needed support for many Oklahoma farmers and ranchers facing market disruptions from COVID-19, Oklahoma Farm Bureau President Rodd Moesel said in a recent Fox 25 News story.
“This is certainly not a program that’s going to get any farmers rich or anything like that but it’s a lifeline,” OKFB President Rodd Moesel said in the story, “it’s just trying to keep many of our small and medium farmers alive for better times that we hope are ahead.”
The second batch of CFAP payments will provide up to $14 billion to help farmers and ranchers devastated by the economic effects of COVID-19 pandemic, including hard red winter wheat producers excluded from the first round.
Producers may apply for the assistance online or at county USDA Farm Service Agency offices through Dec. 11. Learn more about the program at farmers.gov/cfap.
