CRP grasslands enrollment opens

Dec. 16 deadline to submit application

USDA is offering a new Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) Grasslands practice specifically tailored for small-scale livestock grazing operations.

Small livestock operations with 140 or fewer head of grazing beef cows (or other grazing livestock on an equivalency basis) can submit applications to enroll up to 200 acres of grasslands per farm. USDA’s goal is to enroll up to 200,000 acres.

The most recent CRP Grass-land ranking period ended on Nov. 10. To date, the USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) has received nearly 5,000 offers covering over 1 million acres for this CRP working-lands conservation program. These offers are predominantly larger acreage ranchland in western states.
