WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Thirty-one Alabama counties have been declared eligible to share in the $50 million for the Livestock Assistance Grant Program announced as part of an emergency drought relief package earlier this week by U.S. Agriculture Secretary Mike Johanns.

The grants will be distributed by states to livestock producers in counties that were designated as having "extreme" or "exceptional" drought conditions by the National Drought Monitor between March 7 and Aug. 31. State governments will be responsible for conducting sign-ups and issuing payments to livestock producers and will announce their program details individually. FSA offices will not be involved in conducting sign-ups or issuing payments.

The USDA's list of eligible counties include: Autauga, Baldwin, Barbour, Bullock, Butler, Chambers, Choctaw, Clarke, Coffee, Conecuh, Covington, Crenshaw, Dale, Dallas, Elmore, Escambia, Geneva, Henry, Houston, Lee, Lowndes, Macon, Marengo, Mobile, Monroe, Montgomery, Pike, Russell, Tallapoosa, Washington and Wilcox.

Nationwide, 748 counties in 20 states are eligible for the livestock assistance.
