The Audubon county FSA office reports emergency haying on CRP acres has been extended until September 20th. Denny Heflin, FSA Director, says  “Farmers can come into their FSA office after they get the work completed, they just need to remember when they get it done they have to go in and certify it and agree to the terms and conditions. The payment reduction is still the same 10% and bales have to be removed within ten days after completing the harvest.”

The measure came about because of the extended period of dry weather. The emergency haying on CRP acres includes Audubon, Guthrie, and Cass Counties.
