The Placer County Farm Bureau was established in 1912 to find solutions for “…the farm, the farm home, and the rural community.” Today, over 100 years later, the Placer County Farm Bureau is still serving as the voice of local agriculture, by championing the industry’s success through education, outreach, and political action.
Attention LIVESTOCK PRODUCERS!! Placer-Nevada-Yuba Disaster Livestock Access Pass Program
UC Cooperative Extension, in partnership with local ranchers and the Placer, Nevada, and Yuba County Agricultural Departments, has established a Disaster Livestock Access Program for commercial livestock producers in these three counties. This program may permit commercial livestock operators to gain entrance to evacuation zones or other restricted areas to provide feed, water, medical treatment, or other care to large-scale commercial livestock.
For the purposes of this program, a commercial livestock operator is defined as an owner of livestock consisting of 50 head of livestock (including in utero, e.g., 25 bred cows), 100 poultry or rabbits, or 50 beehives or more that reside in Placer, Nevada, or Yuba County for at least a portion of the year, or a person who, through an agreement with that owner of livestock, has authority and is responsible to oversee the care and well-being of the owner’s livestock.
If you qualify, you obtain a Disaster Livestock Access Pass for your operation in Placer, Nevada, or Yuba County, by completing this survey (http://ucanr.edu/pny_livestock_pass_2021) AND attending a mandatory 4-hour training session. Training sessions are being scheduled in Nevada City, Auburn, and Browns Valley – we will notify you of locations and times as soon as possible.
If you have any questions regarding this program, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or (530) 889-7385.
