Resources available for farmers and ranchers affected by winter storms and flooding

News & Media / April 26, 2023

Contact local FSA office to begin process

The Nevada Department of Agriculture (NDA) has been working with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Farm Service Agency (FSA) to find resources and assistance for farmers and ranchers impacted by winter weather and flooding. Producers should report loss of livestock or infrastructure to their local FSA office to begin the process.

“We know it has been a tough winter and as the weather warms concerns are shifting from snow and cold temperatures to flooding,” said NDA Director J.J. Goicoechea. “We hope that this is the beginning of some relief for our farming and ranching communities.”

Any producer who has experienced any level of loss (loss to livestock or crop, structure failure, challenges accessing or purchasing feed, etc.) is encouraged to report to their local FSA offices. For any losses going forward, it should be reported within 30 days. Reports can be made via phone call, email, or by walking into a local office.

“Again, I want to emphasize our thanks to our agriculture industry for their dedication to their livestock and operations,” said Director Goicoechea.

The NDA has provided more information on disaster assistance available to producers on their website at Find contact and location information for the nearest FSA office at
