Livestock News: Dairy farms in Washington hit hard by blizzard


According to the Associated Press, officials say the more than 1,800 dairy cows that died in a blizzard in southern Washington state in February were a nearly $4 million loss, not including the lost milk production.

Farm Service Agency program specialist Gerri Richter tells the Capital Press that seven dairy farms have given notices of loss to the agency’s office in Yakima, and more are expected to report soon. The agency’s Livestock Indemnity Program pays out at 75 percent of market value.
