More Counties Classified Disaster

Governor Matt Mead

Additional Wyoming counties have been added to the list of those qualifying to receive drought disaster relief.  Governor Matt Mead yesterday announced that a total of 16 counties are so designated with six others qualifying since they are adjacent the designated counties.  Mead had requested that all the counties in the state receive disaster designation except for Teton County since Teton County had not suffered grazing loss and dryland hay loss exceeding the disaster threshold.  The counties that are presently designated as primary natural disaster areas due to drought are: Hot Springs, Laramie, Carbon, Sweetwater, Uinta, Lincoln, Sublette, Fremont, Albany, Converse, Platte, Goshen, Campbell, Crook, Niobrara and Weston. Of course Teton County, being adjacent three of those counties is eligible for assistance as well.  The federal drought disaster declaration makes agricultural operators eligible for assistance from the Farm Service Agency. The producer has to meet eligibility requirements and the assistance includes emergency loans.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
