Livestock producers asked to petition for cost-share programs to reduce risks of predator damage

U.S. Department of Agriculture leadership has asked the Western Landowners Alliance to demonstrate demand from producers for cost-share programs for landowner-implemented conflict prevention, including fencing, range riding and carcass management, to reduce risks of predator damage to livestock operations. Communicating producer need will advance the adoption of cost-sharing conflict prevention programs by Natural Resources Conservation Service.

This funding is crucial to the future of ranching and wildlife in the West. As part of that effort, we’re sending a letter to NRCS Western Region State Conservationists and national USDA leadership, and we need as many livestock producer signatures on that letter as possible.
