​​AMARILLO – Nov. 16 is the deadline to sign up for perennial pasture, range and forage insurance. The insurance is designed to protect livestock and hay producers against production losses.

​“Although most of Texas has ample moisture right now, long-term weather projections are showing a weakening El Nino in the spring and a relatively dry summer,” said DeDe Jones, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service risk management specialist. “Therefore, since producers can choose which months to insure, they might want to consider taking out coverage for later in the 2016 grazing season.”

Notices of premiums due will be sent by July 1, 2016.

For more information about this insurance and how it fits into a risk management plan, contact Jones at 806-677-5600 or dljones@ag.tamu.edu​.​​​
