USDA Drought Relief Livestock Forage Disaster Program PDF

This might be useful for those of us without much water this summer:

Overview
The 2014 Farm Bill authorized the Livestock Forage Disaster Program (LFP) to provide compensation to eligible livestock producers who have suffered grazing losses for covered livestock on land that is native or improved pastureland with permanent vegetative cover or is planted specifically for grazing. The grazing losses must be due to a qualifying drought condition during the normal grazing period for the county.
 

Also, LFP provides compensation to eligible livestock producers who have suffered grazing losses on rangeland managed by a federal agency if the eligible livestock producer is prohibited by the federal agency from grazing the normal permitted livestock on the managed rangeland due to a qualifying fire

Art exhibit opens OSU150 Sun Grant Festival

Curator Tina Green-Price and the Giustina Gallery staff have successfully matched art exhibits with each of Oregon State University's year-long grant festivals, from space to sea. But this month's Sun Grant Festival proved to be particularly challenging. The festival is focused on more than just the sun, it is about alternative energy sources and the planet, Green-Price says.

 

 

Solar power was an influence for one of the exhibit's more obscure pieces, an acrylic painting, "Dr. Frankenstein's Monster Goes Solar" by Michael Ousley of Langlois, Oregon. The bright red, yellow and orange painting features Frankenstein with an external LED attached to his forehead.
