News

July 27th, 2011 by Doug Evans

The US Post office is considering closing more than 3,600 post offices throughout the US.

Several offices in southwest Iowa are on the list of offices that might be closed. They include locations in Brayton, Cumberland, Kimballton, and Lewis.

It is important to note that just because a post office is on the list, it does not necessarily mean it will close.

This past January, about 1,400 post offices were considered for potential closings. Two-hundred-eighty offices have officially been closed, but of those 200 passed their reviews and will remain open.

Livestock Losses with Heat

News

July 27th, 2011 by Doug Evans

Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey is encouraging livestock farmers who have experienced death loss due to the extreme high temperatures over the past few to contact their local USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) office. Livestock losses due to extreme temperatures and other weather events may be eligible to receive assistance through the Livestock Indemnity Program (LIP).

Producers only have 30 days from when the loss was discovered to file a notice of loss, so it is important that they start the process in a timely manner. If the farmers qualify for the program they will be eligible to receive 75 percent of the value of the livestock lost.

You can reach the local USDA office in Atlantic at (712) 243-2107. For other locations visit USDA.gov.
