17 counties in Northern Missouri have been approved for emergency haying and grazing on conservation program acres because of the drought.

They are all the counties in the immediate area----Grundy, Mercer, Livingston, Linn, Sullivan, Putnam, Harrison, Daviess, and Caldwell---plus Adair, Chariton, Dekalb, Gentry, Macon, Nodaway, Schuyler, and Worth.

Haying will be permitted on CRP acres through September 24th and grazing will be permitted through Septemer 30th. Grazing in 13 of those counties already was allowed through September 30th. 4 additional counties were added to the original list because of the worsening drought.

When haying CRP acres, 50% of the fields must be left unhayed for wildlife. The hay must be removed from the field by October 30th.

When grazing, at least 25% of the fields must be left ungrazed, or graze not more than 75% of the stocking rate. All livestock must be removed by the end of the grazing period.

Emergency haying and grazing are not allowed on the same acres, and only certain CRP practices are eligible.

The payment reduction for emergency haying and grazing has been lowered from 25% of the rental payment per acre to 10% for this year.

Producers interested in haying or grazing on CRP land, and CRP participants providing land for haying or grazing to an eligible livestock producer, must first request approval and obtain a modified conservation plan from the Natural Resources Conservation Service.

More information is available from county farm service agency offices.
